    Took for abscense of cycle due to oral hormones. Made me sleepy, fatigued, dizzy. It increased oiliness of skin & acne, on face & scalp. No increase in weight, water retention or appetite at all, in fact, appetite was less while on it. Started cycle 1.5 days after ceasing the medicine. Took a 10 day course.
