Experience

I was on this pill for a month and by the third day I started to feel extremely down and emotional. From then on I had awful mood swings and crying bouts, I would cry multiple times a day! I eventually decided I needed to stop taking it as it was so bad, and within a few days of stopping I felt normal again. I think I had a pretty intense reaction to this pill for some reason.
