Experience

At first this pill was fine for me apart from losing nearly half a stone in weight even though I ate food as I normally would do. I lost 2 cup sizes from my boobs from the weight which I lost. I stopped the pill for a break for about 18months and then went back on it. When I went back on it my moods changed it got to a point where I was at a very low point in my life and I couldn’t see a light at the end. I went to see the doctor and I changed my pill.

Experience after taking

I feel like my mood altered massively after stopping taking this pill. I felt like myself again. I’ve not been on this pill for over a year now and I’m slowly starting to put weight back on and feel more like my old self mentally.
