Don’t Give Me A Headache

I hate headaches. I try to remember to thank God that I don’t have a headache as I want to be grateful for the rare times that I experience headaches now. In the past, I had some fairly severe headaches, usually caused, I think, by sinus drainage. I’m forever clearing my throat. The greatest thing to happen to me was finding a drug that relieves me from headaches within an hour–cold and sinus medications. I began with Advil Cold and Sinus and transferred to the Walgreens medication of the same name. They share identical ingredients, but the Walgreen brand is less expensive. However, just as the advertisers must tell you of the side effects when advertising medications on TV, my cold and sinus medication definitely has one side effect that causes me to take the pills sparingly. That negative is that it raises my blood pressure. I have checked with my primary care physician though, and she has cleared me to take it sparingly. When I go out-of-town, I always take these pills with me as they have changed my life for the better.
