Another study revealed that the results between conventional pain medication, and the Vine were comparable. Vine was actually said to be comparable to methotrexate in an study published from China in 2014. They went on to say that taking the supplement with conventional medication was the most effective of all of the treatments.

However, you must discuss the supplement with your healthcare provider before taking it. Thunder God Vine has been shown to interact with some medications.

It has also shown to lower sperm count in men. Other documented side effects are menstrual cycle changes, rashes, diarrhea, headache, and hair loss.

For some the risk outweighs the possible remedies, but for others, the Vine has been key to their pain management regimen.
