Experience

I do suffer from IIH so headaches/dizziness could be from increased brain fluid pressure. Was put on this pill due to having period related horrendous migraines, which have now stopped being every month and are only linked to my IIH. Used to not have periods at all, but I now have recently started having regular very light periods lasting 2-3 days which doctors are not concerned over and said completely normal. I hardly have side effects and find it easy to remember to take every day.
