Acetaminophen (500MG) for Headache

For me Tylenol always works great, I do not understand why everybody takes those much more dangerous NSAIDs like Aspirin, Aleve (naproxen) and Advil (ibuprofen). Don't they know you can have two 500 mg tablets every 6 hours? (I use even a bit more if really necessary), but most of the time I am already headache-free with one tablet twice a day.

Acetaminophen (240MG) for Headache

Works great every time I need it. No need for more aggressive pain killers, like Advil (ibuprofen), naproxen or others. I take 2 pills when I have a headache and it works with apprroxy. 30 minutes. No side effects experienced so far.

And that's why I stopped taking topamax and I'm now waiting to see if the kidney stones are going to stay away and hope that the headaches don't come back.

Mirtazapine (15mg) for headache

I had really bad muscle tension headaches on one side of my head. I was prescribed mirtazapine at the headache clinic. The pain hasn't completely disappeared but it's now bearable. The side effects are actually good for me. I'm sleeping well, put on a bit of weight and I don't have any trouble with the itching in my mouth when I eat fruit any more. Only negative is that I'm a bit drowsy in the ...
