  • you should talk to your doctor. i was having headaches everyday and like you tylenol wasn't working. so my doctor prescribed me some meds that helped and now i hardly ever have a headache. good luck

  • Get peppermint essential oil and rub it on your forehead. Or what you were using before is probably fine to use too.

  • I don't see why Head On would be a problem since you are not ingesting it. I had horrible headaches during the first 12-14 weeks of my pregnancy and Tylenol helped a little bit, but not as much as I wanted it to!!

  • i've been suffering from heachaches for about 5 years.
    When i go pregnant the first trimester i had no pain!!!
    but now in the second i have horrible headaches everyday that cause me to be able to get out of bed. so my doctor gave me some meds. i would check with your doctor before doing anything. good luck!
