How to take the Life Support:

Dosage guidelines for using the Intensive Care Audio Life Support to address guitar effect deficiency vary based on your individual need. Your doctor will recommend the appropriate duration for using the pedal. Typically, for adults, usage spans one to two hours, twice daily. To prevent dizziness, it's advisable to use the Intensive Care Audio Life Support after meals.

If you happen to forget a dose, promptly use Intensive Care Audio Life Support when remembered and continue with your regular schedule. Avoid taking a double dose to compensate for a missed one, as this may lead to irreversible mind bending (Mindbendinitis). Always adhere to the prescribed dosage for optimal results.
