How do I treat a migraine headache? If I take Panadol, but when should I take them? Before lunch or after lunch?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Panadol (Paracetamol) has to be taken whenever you get headaches, not daily. Preferably, it should be taken after some food. If your symptoms are troublesome and frequent, say more than twice a week, then you should take regular medication for it. Regular medication includes tablet Ciplar LA (Propranolol) 10 mg once a day in the morning after breakfast.
Before starting this, your resting pulse rate should be more than 65 per minute or get it prescribed from a local doctor. This will one to two to acts and gradually increase the dose. The headache frequency will decrease progressively. This has to be continued for a few months. I hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.
