To relieve your headache quickly, you can reach for an over-the-counter solution, like acetaminophen.
If you get a lot of headaches or find that over-the-counter medicine doesn’t work, you should talk to your doctor.
If you suffer from a type of primary headache, there are things you can do to prevent future headaches. Talk with your doctor before setting a preventative plan. Your doctor will be able to make specific recommendations based on your individual needs.
Some simple preventative measures include:
- Following a regular schedule
