I took Generes for two months. The first month was great - no issue with the drug itself (more later on the $25 discount card issues).

I also think my emotional reaction to negative or upsetting things was a bit ... Show Full Comment

I have been taking this for two weeks and i have recently began having really bad arm pains and weakness, along with headaches. It could be related to smoking while im using this BC but i will no longer take it im scared i could have a blood clot.
