Detailed Answer:
I read your question carefully and I am sorry about the headaches that are bugging you.

Melatonin doesn't have any interaction with the Benacor HCT, can be safely taken together. However I am not sure why you need it for tension type headache, it is not used for that purpose. Melatonin is used for sleep problems, if you have such issues you can take it, but not for the headache.

As for the headache, tension type headache episodes are treated with over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs like Naproxen or Ibuprofen. If the headaches are very frequent then preventive treatment might be considered with medication like Amitriptyline. Tension type headache is often triggered by stress and anxiety so relaxation techniques, light exercise can also be useful.

I hope to have been of help.
