Doctor can examine: No advice here, just information. Most people get a headache at some time, such as from colds, infections, lack of sleep, too much driving, long hours on the computer, stress at work, etc. In general, OTC options include Tylenol, Motrin, Aleve, Excedrin Migraine, and their generic brands. A severe headache, recurrent headache, persistent headache, or one with worrisome symptoms should be examined.
