I started taking Gildess after Generess Fe stopped offering the discount card. After 1 month on Gildess I started getting extreme mood swings. I would get emotional and mad for no reason. I also had awful cramps at the start of each period. I tried Gildess for 3 more months, but the mood swings and cramps only got worse. I called my doctor today to switch.
