Thanks for the query.

It can be taken for headache as-and-when-required. However for patients having frequent headaches, say many times in a month it should not use it every time. The reason is that side effects of cumulative dosing of dart are more and secondly headache may become drug dependent.

For people with frequent headaches it is better to take treatment under supervision of doctor. That way risk of over medication can be avoided.

Hope I answered your query. If you have more queries, I will be happy to answer.

Good luck!!

Answered by Dr. Piyush Ostwal 13 minutes later

No, it is not advisable to take for people with high BP. It is better to take 'paracetamol 500 mg' at the time of headache.

Good luck.
