    Moderate (for migraine)

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.
