Immune To Medicine, Any Alternatives?

  • Sharebar

I have come to the conclusion that I am immune to medicine, that is of course pertaining to the medicine that I have taken. Aspirin and mild pain relievers do not work on me at all. The only effect that I have ever had from them is the horrible side effect of abdominal pain. I was left with the same headache and new stomach pains. That was only from taking two pills.

I remember being prescribed strong pain relievers when I went to the dentist years ago and they wore off soon after taking them. I was told they were going to last several hours and so I should not take more than 2 a day. Again I had to spend most of the day with the side of my face in pain.

It is not only pain relievers, fever reducers have little to no effect and cough medicine just ends up leaving the bad taste in my mouth without helping the cough.
I get headaches semi-often, most of them are mild and I have learned to ignore them, but sometimes I get headaches that just are annoying and persistent. I have gone to the doctor about them and was told that it was nothing serious, but they are annoying. I just end up going to sleep to escape the discomfort.

My question is whether there are any herbal remedies or natural, possibly homeopathic products that can help with headaches that are not traditional medicine?
Some may say that the reason I am immune to medicine is because I’ve taken so many of them, but that is not the case. I almost never take medicine unless prescribed or I force myself just to see if it will work at least once. I am confident to say that this year I only took one pill that I was given from a friend when I had a headache. Needless to say after an hour without results I just went to sleep early.

Can anyone help? I am looking for someone who knows what they are talking about, not those people who do a five second google search and post the first thing that they see. Does anyone have similar reactions? What do you do to relieve headaches? Have you had success with alternative pain relieving methods.

I am mostly asking for pain relief, as I barely get sick never more than 2 times a year, almost always less. It is usually a mild cold that lasts from 3-5 days before it disappears without taking medicine.
Thank for any informed responses.

  3. Wow, did you ever come to the wrong place! Look at all the crank answers. Homeopathy indeed – please read:
    “Homeopathy – how could any honest person sell this rubbish?”…
    Thankfully Dinah has given you a great answer – please take her advice. Talk to your GP.

    rubbing peppermint oil onto the temples alleviates a headache
    also, maybe you have muscle knots in your neck. i use a backmassaging vibrator against my neck to work knots out, and i find headaches of mine disappear that way
    drink plenty of water
    good luck

  5. The many homeopathic remedies that help in certain situations such as this require a more relaxed setting (to calm the mind). But also rely on various herbs and spices that prescribed medicines either use directly in their active ingredients, or a mimicry of the original herbs and spices.
    So there are ways to do this. The fact that you seem to sleep to avoid the pain may point to homeopathic remedies working because you need to calm your mind.

  6. JennaSea says:

    I recommend you seek out a good practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Find someone you like and are comfortable with. With in one to two treatments you should see a change in your headaches. Since you have a chronic condition herbal medicine specific to your diagnosed pattern should be used as well as acupuncture. I have helped many people that at one time suffered from constant headaches. They now are mostly to completely headache free and take zero drugs. Good luck!

  7. You might be a fast metabolizer, not “immune” to medicines.
    There are genetic variants in the liver enzymes that break down drugs. If you are a fast metabolizer, certain medicines WILL wear off quicker for you than other people.
    This is a real and recognized phenomenon.
    Speak to your doctor about this. You might get better results if this is true, once you are aware of it your doctor can recommend different dosages.

    If there is any way you could afford to go to a naturopath or holistic chiropractor, I am sure he or she would be able to direct you to a safe and effective answer. (I do not regret the $$ I spent as I have definitely been helped by one myself.)

  9. That guy. says:

    Careful with some of quests answers, especially deadly nightshade, POWERFUL hallucinogenic, potentially fatal if taken in high doses..
    Have you actually ever considered medical marijuana? may help with the headaches, definately helps body aches and pains :)
