What do you take to help mediate a headache?
Be honest. And funny, if you can.
I don't know if I can be honest AND funny...and least since I do have to leave out the finer points of my favorite way to get rid of headaches. And because I usually get headaches while my husband is at work, so it doesn't do me any good. At any rate, I'll generally ignore headaches until they get to migraine level, then a bit of caffeine, dark chocolate, and a nap in a dark room does wonders. Before I got pregnant I would take Ibuprofen with these other measures in some cases, but now I don't because I don't want them saying, "Oops, we were wrong about the safe amount to take..." a couple years in the future.
I take Excedrin. It works better for me than other over the counter medications. Also lying down in a cool dark room helps.
If you take excederin with a multivitamin at the same time it works better. My name is Max, I work on cars.
