Experience

I took cerazette for 2 and a half years and I had the worst acne I’ve ever had in my life. Previously I was on the combined pill with no issues. I spent 18 months trying every skincare solution I could find to no avail. I finally contacted the doctors and spent the last year using various acne medications and found epiduo to clear it up. However my doctor wasn’t happy with me using this continually so I had to stop epiduo. Within 3 weeks of stopping it my acne came back so I decided to stop taking my pill. I have been off my pill for 2 weeks now and have had no new spots and my skin is much less greasy with no cystic acne. I would not use this pill again that’s for sure.

Experience after taking

Feeling much happier and a little less numb with my emotions. Only time will tell if I feel anything else as it’s still early doors.
