I wouldn't use: Not sure how safe it is, but no real proof it affects headaches beneficially in most cases. There are proven remedies, and would employ these meds and OTC remedies.

Help please! is DMSO safe for relieving headaches?

DMSO : Is a detergent, and a drug carrier which can deliver medications into the blood through the skin. It has no medical or therapeutic value by itself and every drug you take has risks. So why expose yourself to risks? Talk to your neurologist.
