I was taking enough narcotics to knock off a herd of elephants to get rid of my headaches..told my dr. if he read in the newspaper that I had commited suicide, to send in a correction that I was just trying to get rid of a headache! Anyway..he said lets go back to 1st base. This is what I (my dr.) takes for his headaches: 1 Anaprox (NOT GENERIC!!!!!) & 1 extra strength Tylenol. OK..you may be thinking "right"! Anaprox is Rx. strength aleve. It works synergistically with the Tylenol with no drugged up feelings. Everyone that I know that has tried it has had success. The anaprox is not cheap, depends on what type of Rx. plan you have. Take it with food, and do not get generic anaprox. What have you got to lose beside you headache? Makes sense that it works because many headaches are caused by inflammation of the meninges. Your dr. may say just take 2 aleve, but be persistent! There must be a good reason why they have Rx. strength! Good luck!
