Experience

Started taking this pill as all the previous ones made me crazy and angry. As always hoped this would be the one for me. On the day when started yelling at my kid for no apparent reason, understood that it’s happening again – I’m getting mad angry and can’t control the rage that takes over me. Felt depressed, anxious, disturbed sleep, sad and unhappy. Can’t remember how it feels to be ok. No sec drive for the last 2 weeks whatsoever. It’s been 2 days since I’m not taking it and I feel my sex drive creeping back bit by bit..
