Experience

Rigevidon gave me palpitations, stitches and headaches. I was constantly upset and easily irritated and looking back I think I was crying almost every day. I felt like a different person the day after I stopped taking it. I stopped taking it due to the palpitations but I realised afterwords how it affected my personality and mindset too, I was oblivious to this at the time as it felt like the change was gradual.

Experience after taking

I wasn’t sure if I could stop taking it in the middle of my pack but I don’t think my body could take any more of it so I had to stop. I felt like a different person the next day.
