Medical remedies are astounding, but they have inherent risks. Some patients may develop an allergic reaction to their medicine. Others may build-up a tolerance for certain medications; making them less effective. Patients can also become addicted to some potent medicines. These reactions increase the seriousness of your disease or injury, which may also magnify your pain.
