I was on 20 mg from age 13-18 and it completely stunted my pubertal growth. I didnt grow an inch AND I hit puberty very late. I have very very short legs, arms, and fingers. This medicine is garbage. It also caused gonadal atrophy, so now I can barley have sex with girls. Its very embarassing to talk about but its the truth so I need to get it out there. This drug has destroyed my body...
