Experience

I stopped taking this a few days ago and have noticed changes in my mood already, something I hadn’t noticed was a huge issue while I was taking it. While I was on this pill I felt it was great in many ways and didn’t effect me too badly, but I had headaches a lot and a constant low mood. I found it difficult to be really happy/excited or even really sad, almost a numb feeling. Interested to see how I feel after longer off the pill
