My doctor will raise it for a few months when I'm having a lot of breakthroughs and when they are back under control after a couple of months he puts it back down. It works well for me.

Does Anyone Suffers From Migraines?

Does anyone suffers from migraines? If so what do you recommend for the pain?. I've tried Extra strength Tylenol, Tylenol with codeine, Hydrocodone seems like nothing works. Benadryl seems to work but I just can't take it when I'm working because it makes me sleepy.

What Can I Do About These Constant Headaches?

What Can I Do About These Constant Headaches?

Lately i am suffering from severe headaches, when i was younger i used to get them alot. As i got older they subside so i was relieved, but now its just everyday and on top of that i get nauseous and stomach ache. I'm so tired of being ill and dealing with so many health issues. I thank god and my family everyday for being there for me, but sometimes its just so much to bare. What do you guys take for severe headaches, are they over the counter or prescribed?
