Hello all. Just wondering if anyone has any other solutions to headaches other than taking meds! My dr wont give me headache meds he says its from tension and stress and once I take my anti depressants they will go away (which Im currently debating on taking at the moment). I've been relying on Excedrin for years now a little too much (like first thing every morning, it seems to be addicting to me! I don't know!) and Im afraid that one day it's going to stop working for me (sometimes I feel that it already has!). Ive had headaches ever since I was a kid, always. Had plenty of CT scans and MRIs in that department all normal. I could blame it on stress and tension now a days but not when I was a little kid. I am now 26 and still same thing! Anyone with any natural remedies that actually work please share! Thanks!

It's great that excedrin helps you but it's not good to take it too regularly, especially in high doses. Your doctor is probably correct about the antidepressant, i was taking one for migraines for a while and it helped tremendously. I am not saying this is your best option though. I was able to treat mine with zomig for a while but that's not going to be an approach if you're having them on a very regular basis. If they are daily or every other day, a preventative would be be the best. You really need to work with a doctor to figure out what works for you. I haven't had luck with anything natural but I've heard of people trying magnesium for migraines with some success. Unfortunately it didn't work for me.
