I cant believe when I read your post about Fortodol a friend who also has fibro toldmeabout them .I got them and then just last night I was looking to see if I could order them online , thought if they werenatural they would be ok.
Couldnt believe what I read about the side affects liver failure. Am so disappointed as i was really feeling the benefits from them. I felt better than I had for some time. :(

Natural never means safe. If something has a chance of being effective, then it likely has possible side effects and interactions. Even if it's doing nothing to help, doesn't mean it's safe - there are plenty of natural poisons!

And just because it's available on a UK website does not mean it's approved in the UK. One thing I came across recently was that the sweetener Stevia is available on a number of UK websites despite not being approved in the UK.

Always check with your GP and pharmacist.
