I don't know what everyone else is complaining about, this pill isn't so bad. I'm an 18y/o non-smoker, and I just finished my first pack of Emoquette, and although the start was a little rocky (I've never taken bc before), I'm doing much better now. In the beginning, I became irritable and tired occasionally (this was bad for the first three or four days) and my depression cam ... Show Full Comment

I went from having a 4 day period to a full 7 days period. I did g ... Show Full Comment
