It seems from the history that you are having chronic headache and treated with paracetamol and nimesulide. Since it has not responded you are prescribed naxodom.
Naxodom is prescribed for treatment of acute migraine and it contains naproxen, an analgesic and domperidone, an antiemetic.
The treatment is correct for treatment of acute attack of migraine.
However to prevent recurrent attacks you need yo use prophylactic drugs like flunarizine or beta blockers.

Thank you
