Experience

I got on well – only had to stop using due to migraines. I’ve now been prescribed Noriday and am soon to see if I get on well with it. Used Cerelle for a week whilst i was switching too and it was fine, loss of sex drive and dryness have been a bit of a deal but nothing I couldn’t handle so the only reason I’m changing is because of the migraines.
