I have been taking mononessa for about six months. I was nauseous at first but that went away in about a week. My face cleared up completely and I shave way less. Recently though my mood has been out of control! I am always angry and irritated. I have become really anxious and sad most of the time. I have decided to stop taking it. I really thought I found the perfect bc.
