Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi Mr XXXXXXX Thank you for posting your query. Most likely, you are suffering from migraine. Since you have very frequent headaches, it is better to start on preventive medications to reduce the severity and frequency of headaches, as pain-killers can not be taken in large amounts. The options for preventive medications include beta blockers, topiramate, flunarizine and divalproex. Regarding combiflam, it is safe, but better options to reduce the headaches in migraine are vasograin and rizatriptan tablets. This is because combiflam may cause acidity and kidney damage if used in more quantities. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
