Can Ambien give you a headache? If yes, is there anything you can take to counteract the headache?

Though Ambien is listed to cause headache, it is not a very commonly reported by most patient. None of my patients have reported headaches with it.

You can discuss to learn other causes of headache. If none is found, we can attribute it to Ambien.

Whatever may be the cause, I think you can still take paracetamol pain medication such as Tylenol pain relief to counteract the headache.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarification.
