Hello,

Endone is not recommended as first-line therapy for headaches (especially if secondary to something such as medication).

Try to bring to the temperature down with cold compresses, lots of fluid hydration, and the headaches just may subside as well.

You could also try agents such as IBUPROFEN, NAPROXEN, or DICLOFENAC for both headache and fever relief. This would depend also on what your other medical conditions may be are aside from the colon tumors.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
