Not impressed: Have reviewed Neuroplex, which is mostly vitamins, has no benefit whatsoever for headaches, and is a blatant waste of money.

See headache specialist. ...Read more

Ultimately, you should consider undergoing cogntive-behavior therapy for it, as that kind of treatment really works. ...Read more
