Did You Know About These Headache Remedies?
More than 47 million
Americans have experienced a severe or debilitating headache in the past
three months. Migraines alone affect 9% of the U.S. population and
costs $1 billion a year in direct medical expenses.
There are the
obvious choices for zapping the pain, such as nonsteroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (Motrin and Aleve, for example). People with
migraines often take beta blockers or antidepressants to prevent
headaches, and triptans, such as Imitrex or Relpax, once symptoms start.
But if your headaches are persistent or other medications just
aren't cutting it, here are some other approaches you can consider.
