If you’re considering using a dietary supplement or other natural product for pain, check with your health care provider to make sure it’s safe for you. The fact that a product is “natural” doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s harmless.
Some dietary supplements may have side effects, and some may interact with medications. Also, there have been instances when products with hidden, illegal ingredients have been marketed as dietary supplements. So, make sure you know about the product you're buying and remember to talk to your health care provider if you ever have a concern about a product.
