Experience

This pill caused me to completely lose my sex drive, I was extremely irritable and felt “numb” most of the time. This had a huge effect on my relationship and in the end, I made the decision to stop taking this pill.

Experience after taking

It took a good few months, but I felt like me again after stopping this pill. My sex drive returned & was back to normal after a month although, my emotions were still a little up & down for a couple of months.

Had a similar experience?
