I have been given NFT for my UTI problem. I have been on Echospirin, Telmisartan 40 and prolomet . Febustat has been added to my prescription just 2 days ago since my Uric Acid level suggested so as my doctor felt. How shall I get relief from the severe headache?

Brief Answer:
Check your blood pressure

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for query. Based on the facts that you have posted the headache that you have is not likely to be due to as it is not known to have this side effect.

The headache could be mostly to transient rise in blood pressure

Visit your Dr to check your B. P . You may discontinue Fabulas

Take pain killer like Bruges twice daily.
