    Aromatherapy works well – the following scents work well to relieve headaches:


    Just rub a little bit on your temples and it should help you relax. Pressing on your temples helps too.

    Excedrin. Works for me. Or aspirin & 2 big ol’ cups of BLACK coffee.I have a history of migraines. I have been on prescription meds. This is the only thing that works for me !

    There’s the possibility your headaches are migraines, for which I take Imitrex. It works well, especially in injection form (injection stings like hell though). The unfortunate part is if you’re not insured, Imitrex costs a small fortune (100 mg tabs are around $ 25-30 per pill at the pharmacy, you might be able to fill it online for less). As it is non-narcotic, it doesn’t have the level of sedating effect percocet/vicodin has, but it will make you a bit sleepy. Good luck!
