In brief: Avoid Rebound

Taking any medications whether they be otc or prescription for headaches over and over will lead to the development of rebound "headaches, probably the most difficult type of headache to treat and control.

In brief: Any

There is no specific analgesic that has been shown to be better than another for headache of any kind.
Just take what works best for you.
