Anyone who has ever suffered the excruciating pain of a migraine knows just how debilitating an attack can be lasting anything from several hours to up to a day or, in some cases, even longer!

Sometimes a treatment is worse than the disease. But nearly as bad: Sometimes a treatment actually contributes to the health issue it’s supposed to address.
This is the case with a common ailment, treated with a common over-the-counter medication, often prompting a return of the ailment, which is treated again, setting up a vicious cycle that many people get caught up in without ever knowing it.
