Advice & Tips: Be careful if you're on multiple medications that can put your organs at risk. None of my Dr's warned me about this and if I hadn't forced the issue they wouldn't have sent me to a Nephrologist. Luckily, he took me or all the meds that were doing damage before to much permanent damage was done. However, now there are certain meds I can never take, otherwise I risk more severe renal failure. Be Your own advocate or find one to help you.

Advice & Tips: worked the best for the pain and problems involved with my original injuries and post auto accident on june 23,2014. As the combinations with external inhuman experiments and interference's created mixed inaccurate medical input related to any medications I have taken prior to long breaks of input on medication use in the long gaps since 2011.
