When I get a headache, its usually a pretty bad one and can take all day and night to get rid of. I finally went ot my doctor to see if there was anything I could take that would help. I had tried Tylenol, Advid, etc and none of them worked.
I am not a fan of taking any kind of pills but the headaches were really bad...but I didn't want anything that made me drowsy or feeling funny because I wanted to be able to take it during the day at work. My doctor gave me a prescription for Motrin 800mg. I have to admit when I first got it filled I wasn't very happy. They are huge pills, but I thought I would give it a try.
I can't explain the relief Motrin 800mg give me and it works in about 5-10 minutes. It has become a life saver for me. Fortunately I don't get many but when I get them they are pretty bad and come on pretty fast. After taking just one pill, the headache is gone.
Just a note, my headaches are not considered migranes, they are just headaches. I do recommend you talking to your doctor about Motrin 800mg if you suffer from headaches. Also, it works completely different then the over the counter Motrin. Taking 4 200mg will not work the same.
