The client was prescribed dietary supplements. She has severe digestive intolerance and often reacts with migraine to foods and supplements. She is concerned about the supplement’s usefulness and about getting a migraine from it.

Question: Is this supplement good for me? Will I get migraines from taking it?

Answer: The supplement is very good for your health. However, the risk of side-effects in the form of migraines is very high due to liver sensitiveness.

Advice: Start with a very low dosage; much lower than the one prescribed.

Outcome: She did start with a very low dose, and still got a migraine. She decreased the dosage further in order to tolerate the side effects and she is building up tolerance gradually.
