Experience

I didn’t realise how badly this affected my mental health. It was such a slow change that I really just felt like my mental health was affected for no reason – a minor blip in the day / waking up a bit too late set my whole day off in a depressed atmosphere. My head was foggy I couldn’t see out of bad moods/ bad situations. Now I am off of it I can think clearly.

Experience after taking

I noticed my hair was very thin at the crown of my scalp – can’t be sure this is the pill. I was so much happier and started to get more of a sex drive back.
