My son has a persistent headache since last 15 days. It started with headache. Consulted various neurologist. Got MRI and CT done, all clear. He gave various medicines, even Noxdorm 250, but no response.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern and would explain that his symptoms could be related to a tension-type headache. Coming to this point, I agree with the doctors prescription about Citalopram and Sibelium (attachment removed to protect patient identity). But these drugs may need up to two weeks to show its effects. For this reason, you should be patient. If the situation does not improve in a couple of weeks, I would recommend trying Amitriptyline and Valproate combination. You should discuss with his doctor about these treatment options. Based on his test reports, I would conclude about a primary headache (benign, related to psychological stress).
