My mother always took Advil (ibuprofen) for her headaches. Therefore I started doing the same with most of my headaches. Is that unhealthy?

In brief: Better Living

The goal is to find the cause of the headaches and treat the cause, not just take pain meds all of the time.
Advil (ibuprofen) is safe when used sparingly, but please do not follow in your mother's footsteps. Find the cause of the problem.
