    I recently went off of narcotics after more than 10 years on them for management of my fibromyalgia. My success was entirely because I used Frida Botanicals Tincture #2! It was completely painless. Because of my very unpleasant experiences trying to get off of narcotics multiple times before, I was having a lot of anxiety about the process. It literally was *painless*!! The worst thing I can say is that the taste isn’t great, but a glass of something to drink after. I simply cannot say enough positive things about this!

    Frida Botanicals taper tonic no. 2 has changed my life. I suffer from severe pain and anxiety due to fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. I take pain and anxiety medication. I find that taper tonic no. 2 helps me to take less of my medications, and stretches out the time between doses. It relieves my anxiety allowing me to do more things and makes it easier to deal with my pain. I am actually surprised that it helps me as much as it does. Thank you Dr. Liptan for continuing to improve the lives of people with fibromyalgia as well as those with other pain and anxiety issues.

    I started using Taper Tonic #2 after being cut off opioid medication I’d taken for a very long time for relief of pain from fibromyalgia as well as sever cervical and lumbar problems. I began to taper off my meds and was then abruptly cut back to a very low dose, sending me into horrible withdrawal. I found Frida Botanicals and ordered this tonic. It did help the severity of my withdrawal symptoms. The taste was an issue for me so I began mixing it in juice and that helped! It’s only been a couple months that I stopped taking opioids completely so I continue to use this tonic. Muscle spasms are less severe and my withdrawal symptoms overall are easier to cope with. I highly recommend this tonic to anyone who is discontinuing opioid medication. It will ease your symptoms of withdrawal!
