Headache Medication Needed

Recommended Posts

Extra Strength Tylenol isn't helping my tension headaches (start in the neck). Any suggestions for another OTC medication that is easy on the stomach but stronger than Tylenol?

Thanks

I take 3 Advil for my headaches. The recommended dose of 1 - 2 does nothing for them. It doesn't bother my stomach but I'm not sure if it's easy on the stomach.

I can't tolerate Ibuprofin, it makes me nauseous. For any pain that Tylenol won't touch, I use Extra Strength Bufferin. Some people can't use aspirin, but I can tolerate this fine--and it's great for pain.

It a matter of trying a few different things until you hit on the one that works while not causing side effects. Hope you feel better!

aleve (naproxene sodium) is a pretty good pain killer------i think i used to take 2 instead of 1. OTC meds don't work for my tension headaches. i used darvocet for alot of years, but i have been on norco since my hysterectomy last year.

do you get tension headaches alot? i have had them for so long that i have lost the natural curve in my neck---the tense muscles caused it, i guess. i am just starting some exercises to try and help my neck and head stop hurting all the time. don't let yours get this bad!!!!!
