I took Junel for just about 2 weeks and stopped. It was awful. I gained 7 lbs in the 2 weeks and had severe stomach bloating. No pain but my stomach- but the bloating was unbearable.

I am on day 7, and I am destroying this pack today. I am typically a positive, bubbly, & sunny personality, but I am turning into wacko b*tch on Junel. In one week's time, I have swung from feelings of simmering rage, to normalcy, to numbness, and then to depression.

Comment:
I have had a horrible experience while taking this drug. My doctor switched me to this right before my wedding. I started feeling detached from my life a few weeks later. This feeling has continued to worsen and I've gone through 2 packs. I now cry all the time for no reason and feel trapped almost. I've never suffered from depression and have always been a pretty upbeat, positive person. ... Show Full Comment
