You might also have a condition called hemicrania continua which will not respond t traditional agents, but will respond well to Indomethacin. Consult your doctor about this.

hi,these effects are modest, and supportive therapy alone is sufficient like gabapentine, amitryptiline, and capsaicin ointment may be used with physicians advice.these effects may persist for 4-5 weeks. thanx for sharing. have a good health.
