Make sure you drink enough water throughout the day, and wear a hat and sunglasses when out in the sun. Sometimes rubbing the pressure point between your pointer finger and thumb will help relieve pressure. If those do not work you may want to talk to your doctor. It could be the same headache is returning everyday, what you are taking know is just masking the symtoms of a prolonged migraine. That is what happened to me I got one IMATREX shot and have not got another one in over 9 months. Divorce !
Look for sources of stress and try to elimiate them or calm yourself when you encounter them.If they are migraines, try drinking caffeine in addition to the ibuprophen.Have your eyesight checked to make sure you aren’t straining anything.
try a sample of Imitrex or Maxalt 10mg similar for migraines from your doctor, I do, they work better and faster than motrin 800 just make sure you take one or the other and not mix migraine meds.
