Experience

I’ve used this pill on several occasions over a number of years. In the past (approx 5+ years ago) I had no issues with it, however more recently I’ve experienced weight gain and severe mood swings where I could cry at the drop of a hat. Really unusual for me and the mood swings were the main reason for me stopping.
