Straight from the FDA, here is some scary breaking news: certain packages of Excedrin, NoDoz, Bufferin and Gas-X Prevention are being voluntarily recalled by Novartis Consumer Health because the bottles may contain stray pills of other medicines, or broken or chipped pills.
The Food and Drug Administration announced the recall affects Excedrin and NoDoz medicines with expiration dates of Dec. 20, 2014 or earlier and Bufferin and Gas-X Prevention medicines with expiration dates of Dec. 20, 2013 or earlier.
The FDA explains why the recall has the potential to be dangerous:
"Mixing of different products in the same bottle could result in consumers taking the incorrect product and receiving a higher or lower strength than intended or receiving an unintended ingredient. This could potentially result in overdose, interaction with other medications a consumer may be taking or an allergic reaction if the consumer is allergic to the unintended ingredient."
Popping different over the counter medicines for migraines, aches or pains aren't a very good idea. When you treat yourself based only on symptoms, the underlying cause is ignored and will only get worse. The chiropractic approach to treating pain at Sauganash chiropractor, Dr. Cynthia Seaman, consists of any number of physical approaches including manipulation to the spine & extremities, deep tissue massage, stretching, exercises, and nutritional and life style coaching.
There are three primary causes for most chronic pain: motion problems (of the joints & muscles), abnormal alignment, and weakness. By restoring motion, alignment & strength, Dr. Seaman's approach can offer permanent relief of even stubborn chronic pain conditions. According to the research, physical approaches are more effective & safer than taking drugs for chronic musculoskeletal pain. Additionally, it's more cost effective and not toxic like popping pills! It is also a chance at permanent relief because we can actually address & correct the root cause of the problem.
