Best medication for a headache?
I’ve had a headache for 3 days now, what is the best medication to take a headache away?

There are losts of good answers, but the best answer:

Answer by Nurse Jacki
If you are looking for something that you can go get at the store, try Excedrin. It contains aspirin, Tylenol(acetaminophen) and caffeine, and it works really well for headaches. Some stores have been having a shortage of Excedrin, but most chain drugstores and large supermarkets will have a store brand that works just as well as the name brand. Look for a label that says “compare to Excedrin”, or look for those three ingredients– aspirin, acetaminophen and caffeine. That should help.

Answer by Doug
Actually the best one is the one you find to take your migraine away. Everyone is different…Imitrex is good. My wife uses Maxalt. Firoicet is old…prob. not the best choice. There are someother newer ones as well. Make sure you have a complete evaluation of your All kinds of Headache before being prescribed migraine drug. even though your doctor doesn’t order a Ct scan (at least)…go somewhere else.

What is the best way to relieve a headache without medication?
My little brother is ill, with a ferocious headache and his body is at least a degree or two higher in his temperature, what should I do…? Is it better for a wet rag to be luke-warm or cold when placed on the forehead?

a warm compress will actually help his headache.Cold will only make it worse.You want to open up the blood vessels.Make sure it is not too hot.Give some Tylenol if he has not ingested alcohol or any other medications, and tell hime to rest.If temp starts to get higher meaning over 101.0 then he needs to be taken to the hospital

What is the best way to get rid of a severe migraine?

What is the best way to get rid of a severe migraine?
I have severe migraines everyday. I wake up it’s there, I go to sleep it’s still there. For the past 6 years I have lived with a migraine that never goes away. I’ve tried all of the major OTCs and prescription medications for headaches and nothing ever works. If there is some odd, non-medication treatment (besides accupuncture which failed to work for me) that you’ve tried and it worked for you please let me know.
I’ve also been to many doctors because of this, I’ve spent time at MHNI (Michigan Head pain and Neurological Institute) which specializes in headaches, and they can’t even tell me what’s wrong.
