Which is better at relieving severe headaches, ibuprofen or diclofenac? Or both maybe? Open to suggestions for alternatives.

Best to diagnose

Headaches
Severe headaches can be due to migraines, but other causes could be present. Always best to confirm etiology, as treatment success far better in that case. There are downsides to just taking OTC NSAID's such as stomach problems, blood pressure elevation, etc. If you do have migraine, prevention with riboflavin, Co-Q10, butterbur, etc could be useful. Do talk to your doctor about your headaches

Dr. Zahid Niazi answered:

Are tramadol and diclofenac the same?

Different pain meds

Tramadol
Tramadol & Diclofenac are two completely different families of medication but they both can be used together if a patient has pain &inflammation. The first choice is the NSAID(Diclofenac in this case) on a regular basis, if tolerated & for moderate pain then using the non-narcotic(Tramadol) as your secondary pain medication. In some patients I may use a narcotic pain medication instead of Tramadol
