Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi Mr XXXXXXX Thank you for posting your query. Since you have very frequent headaches, you should be on migraine preventive medications such as beta blockers, topiramate or divalproex. These medicines reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches. Also, saridon or other pain killers are not safe over long time, especially if they are taken in such huge numbers (two per day). So, please reduce them. As of now, you can take rizatriptan tablets, as and when headache occurs (maximum four per week). I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
