How to Get Rid of a Headache
You can reduce how many headaches you get and how bad they are when you do get them. Try to:
- Find and avoid triggers that cause your headaches.
- Carry your medicine with you so you can treat a headache right away when you feel one starting. This is especially important if you get migraines.
- Don't take over-the-counter pain relievers more than 3 times a week, because you may get rebound headaches. These headaches usually occur after pain medicine has worn off. This prompts you to take another dose. After a while, you get a headache whenever you stop taking the medicine.
