I JUST started taking this medicine. I am on my second week and 4th day. I can tell the difference... I have gained a few pounds (Not a problem trying to gain weight anyway xD) BUT I will CRY over NOTHING. It has made me depressed, but I am slowly coming out of it :) I am going to continue to take it and just hope it passes :) But no other complaints so far!:D

After going off this I had terrible depression, anxiety, fear, a sense of hopelessness and so on. I would be very cautious before going on BC, it messes with y ... Show Full Comment
