No way...: There is no way to prevent side effects happening when taking a medication. If the side effects are mild you can wait and see if your body gets used to the medication and they resolve, but as you are describing, the headache and nausea are bad you might need to stop it and get alternative medication prescribed. Call your doctor as soon as possible to discuss options.

Change medication: If this persists, you should talk to your prescriber about an alternative medication.
