    Hi Steph,

    Happy Easter to you too!

    Well it depends what type of headache you have, but sounds like a migraine of some description, so to get an over the counter medicine, you cant do much worse than Imigran.  They come in 50mg tablets and you get 2 only as they are pretty potent.  You take one and IF it goes away and come back you can take the other, but some chemists will want to talk to you about them before they sell them and may persaude you to go for something like Solpadeine max, which has codiene in.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on

    Yes, I agree, Imigram works wonder. Had to take one this morning, migraine gone completely within an hour. Don't know where you're get them on an Easter Sunday though. Good luck.
