Default What painkiller should I take for headaches? - 12-26-2008, 09:47 AM

I get a fairly bad headache at least once a day and Tylenol and Advil are just not helping anymore. I also get migraines and headaches that make me feel dizzy and nauseated. I have been living on Advil and Tylenol for quite a while now and both of those are starting to lose affect. Is there a really great headache medicine out there that I haven’t discovered yet? Or am I just going to have to live with these?

How about trying a natural remedy. Pure essential lavender oil put on your forehead.

Hmm. IT concerns me that you have had these headaches at least once a day and have been having to rely on Tylenol and Advil on a regular basis.If you read the label on the back they generally say that if you have to take them for more than a certain amount of days you should talk to your doctor luv.I have a feeling something more is going on than just a run of the mill headache.I don't mean to worry you or anything because it could mean something as simple as you needing to get a few hours of rest each night or perhaps drinking a little more water who knows?The body builds up a tolerance to OTC meds and even prescription medication after long term use so i would hate to recommend another one without you talking to your family doctor.Good luck and i hope you feel better soon!

When I get a migraine, I take Excedrin Migraine or Excedrin Extra Strength (they are both the same thing in a different box). It is actually a mixture of aspirin, tylenol, and caffeine. It is the only OTC medication that helps me.I know some people who say that caffeine gives them a migraine, but in many cases it helps. Something about opening or closing blood vessels or something.

Try Excedrin migraine. If they are that bothersome go to your doctor and he can prescribe some good migraine meds for you.
