  • Excedrin TENSHION headache. Usually you can not take Excedrin, but this type is ok.

  • try tylenol and a cup of coffee followed by laying downin a dark cool room for an hour...
    15 weeks youre at the height of organogenisis and I would not take anything else

  • Try massaging your face, temples and neck, removing yourself from anything (light, noise, stress) that may be causing the headache to be worse...warm/cool compresses on your head, a warm bath like a pp said.. :) Hope you feel better.

  • My OB gave me Reglan. It's usually for gastrointestinal issues, but it does wonders for my headaches. Might ask about it. It's only like 4 bucks too.

  • My doctor gave me Midrin its a safe migraine medicine. It works wonders for me. Tylenol hardly works for me either so I just talked to my doctor about it. So just talk to your doctor and they can prescribe you something that will be safe for you and the baby.
