Experience

Horrendous experience both times I have tried it. In the past it has caused depression which disappeared a few days after stopping it thankfully. Most recently a few weeks ago it triggered depression and anxiety- I had a horrible 2-3 week period of palpitations, racing thoughts, panic attacks, and worst of all, terrible, debilitating insomnia leading to needing sleeping tablets on prescription. I felt like I was going to die. Very, very unusual for me, out of character behaviour. It got better about a week after stopping the pill and a month later I’m completely back to my normal self, chilled out happy and falling asleep after a few minutes at night. Never again. Be very careful.
