Anything not listed in the above questions you’d like to share about your experience?
Since I stopped the medication, have been 24 days so far - 25/05/2019
Tell us your story, in your own words, about your usage and side effects experienced while on/off the drug.
Everything declined since the first pill, when I started taking this f*** poison, everything you can read in this forum happened to me. Only 1 mg /day - 12 days. The worst part happened 3 days after quiting the medication. Panics attacks, difficult to talk, penis dead, INSOMNIA and so on. Now - 24 days after quiting (today is 25/5/2019)- I recovered some of my intellectual capabilities but not recovered from sexual problems. I wish I could get erection like before, they used to happen espontaneusly, nowadays I dont want to be near a girl, not even chat with them. I want to know if there is a chance to recover, since didnt take a lot of pills… Anyway, I will try to keep up to date my state, please tell me what you think. Doctors say cant be the drug Sorry foy my words, but I really feel upset … It´s difficult to believe that this poisson is for sale. They say fully reversible adverse effects, crap. I would preffer have taken 12 g of cocainte instead that shit.
