Is it okay to take migraine medication for regular headaches?

Dr. James Wolfe

No.: Migraine-specific medications are designed to work for migraine headaches. Depending on the medication, they may provide little or no relief for other forms of headache and instead, only expose the patient to unnecessary side effects or complications. Check with the physician that manages your headaches as to his/her advice for treating common cephalgias.

Although Migraine-specific meds may help a number of non-migraine type headaches they are akin to using a sledge hammer as a fly-swatter. If your headaches are frequent, they may actually be migraines but you need to be on preventive medication as a first-line treatment.

I am taking Indobloc to stop a migraine cycle. I have my second headache in 7 months can I take myprodol. I took the Indobloc about an hour ago. ?

Should be safe: Indobloc is a beta blocker designed to prevent migraines or at least decrease the number of headaches- it sounds like it has done this for you. Myprodol is a combination of pain medications designed for use when a bad headache occurs despite the preventive meds, & yes it is safe to take a dose of that an hour or more after the Indobloc dose. If your headaches become more frequent call Dr.
