A Dozen Ways to Reduce Chronic Pain

Dear Pharmacist,

I have chronic pain and take ibuprofen daily plus hydrocodone and celecoxib. I'm willing to do anything right now that could help. The craziest thing is that nothing happened to me, I just developed pain over the years, no accidents, no trauma. Can you help me?

Dear Pharmacist,

Recently I saw a major network news program about researchers looking for drugs to prevent Alzheimer’s. The doctors interviewed held out so little hope and it really upset me that they didn’t suggest diet and exercise. Both my parents had dementia. I’m scared of it happening to me.
