Experience

The main thing I would say is that who this pill affected me mentally is awful I suffered depression for years, and an eating disorder as a result. Even though I was diagnosed my GP never connected the two. The minute I came off it, 10 years after starting to take it, my depression disappeared almost immediately

Experience after taking

My depression left me. Everything returned to normal. I wished ‘d never taken it. I would say that I wouldn’t take it and if you do to really monitor your mental health
