Music is a source of comfort and catharsis for most people, so we stocked our musical pharmacy with some tunes to cure your ailments. From home sick to heart sick, check with us weekly for new musical prescriptions.

Ailment: Toothache

You've just finished a hell of a delicious lunch but now your head is throbbing and your jaw aches like someone high-fived your cheek with a hammer. This just keeps happening and this time you didn't bring any floss to temporarily alleviate the pain. What you really need is a root canal. But while you're stuck having to get through the rest of the day, you'll just have to numb the ache another way.

Drug name: Noweevokaind

Active Ingredients: Abel Tesfaye's playful vocals and chorus, slightly reminiscent of Michael Jackson. The title, obvs. 

Uses: To temporarily redirect your focus from your face to the funky drop of the chorus creating a numbing effect.

Directions: Turn it way up, and play two consecutive doses. If your ears are full of tunes, the less you'll feel your face. Repeat as necessary to dull the pain. 

Warnings: Do not exceed 10 doses in 24 hours.
