Does daily medication help migraines

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have suffered for years with regular headaches, the doctors never really managed to help, but at last I have been told that I need to take daily tablets to try to prevent them. I also have bad sinus problems so cant take the usual medications.

Has anyone had success with using the daily medication to prevent there headaches or do they just make you feel sleepy and lethargic.

Interested on your thoughts

    Thanks Joan, I will mention that to my doctor as I have suffered with back problems for many years and could be contributing. Good luck with the Asprin, let me know how you get on after a few weeks.

    Actually there are a lots of reason responsible for headache. Some has allergic reactions, some has bright light, loud noises, perfumes, some has physical and emotional stress, some has irregular sleep. First you have to identify particularly when you are feeling headache. I personally suggested not to take daily basis medications for headache.
