Thank you for posting your query.
For your mother, you need to put her on preventive medications, which could prevent the headache episodes in the future, as she has very frequent headaches
Using pain killers when she gets headaches may relieve her pain on that day, but they can not prevent headaches in the future.
Preventive medications include flunarizine
, beta blockers, Topiramate
