Hi, Thanks for your query pain killers or analgesics such as aspirin and paracetamol (eg Panadol)
pain killers or analgesics combined with codeine (eg Panadeine)
pain killers or analgesics combined with a sedative (eg Mersyndol, Fiorinal)
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (eg Nurofen).

These products are effective and safe when taken according to the directions. Always check with your doctor or pharmacist, as some products are not recommended with certain health conditions or for children. Mild tension-type headaches usually respond readily. For severe headaches that do not respond, if medication is required several times a week, or for problems in taking medication, a doctor should be consulted.

Prescription medications taken to treat more severe headaches include

Stronger NSAIDs
Analgesics containing stronger narcotic-type analgesics
Ergots such as ergotamine (eg Cafergot) that have a specific action against migraine
Triptans such as sumatriptan (eg Imigran), naratriptan (eg Naramig), zolmitriptan (eg Zomig) that have a specific action against migraine
Anti-nausea drugs such as metoclopramide (Maxolon), prochlorperazine (Stemetil) and domperidone (Motilium). Regards, Dr.Sharmila
