-Because of the blood-invigorating nature of this formula, Back Support (Acute) is not recommended during pregnancy and nursing.

-If the patient presents with fever and a one-sided back pain, consider a possible kidney infection and do not use this herbal formula. Patients with acute nephritis should be referred to their medical doctor immediately.
-Patients who have pain radiating to the extremities accompanied by a sudden loss of bladder or bowel control may have a pinched nerve or spinal injury, and must be referred out to emergency care. This condition, known as Cauda Equina syndrome, can lead to permanent disability and must be evaluated and treated immediately.
-Take 3 to 4 capsules, three times daily as needed to relieve pain. The dosage may be increased up to 6 to 8 capsules every four to six hours if necessary, especially in the early stages of injury when there is severe and excruciating pain. When the pain subsides, the dosage can then be decreased to 3 or 4 capsules three times daily. For maximum effectiveness.
