Headache every time I have exams at uni so what is the solution for headache due to stress while Advil (ibuprofen) and other calming medication doesn't work?

Some drugs are purposely coated to delay absorption so as not to irritate the esophagus or stomach. If you don't know whether or not a drug can harm the esophagus or stomach, I would not recommend grandma's technique. If she continues her method, advise her to drink lots of water. ...Read more
