Migraine Medicine


Paracetamol's chemical name is acetamenophen. It is taken in 500mg tablets, two at one time. The recommended maximum is four doses daily.

How it works
Paracetamol inhibits the brain's production of pain transmittors. Unlike aspirin it is not acidic, so it does not affect the digestion. Some people experience a lighter mood and drowsiness when using paracetamol.

In large doses paracetamol causes irreversible damage to the liver. There is also some fear that chronic use of paracetamol may damage the kidneys and bladder.

Sometimes crying or laughing
are the only options left,
and laughing feels better right now.
