Was put on it because I'm breastfeeding. I been on it for 4mohths now. No weight gain or acne. The only side effect I have is no periods. I am not sure I like that though, woman should get a period every month, it's natural..

There are a lot of negative reviews of this drug but I have had a very good experience from it.
