    My 4 year old daughter has been having a run of headaches. They had me treat her with a 1/2 of an Aleve 2ce daily for 3 days along with 6 oz of caffienated beverage. They also have her taking 100mg of Vit B2 2ce a day. She is so young. Anyone have any other suggestions for things I can do? The neurologist says the next step is nortriptiline. I don't want to use that being that she has a history of depression on both sides. I don't want to give her a seratonin boost that she won't need now. I will take anything anyone has to offer at this point. I am just so worried about her.

    I was diagnosed with migraine headaches when I was 2 years old and they have unfortuntly been handed down to my four year son, his are so different than mine at first I didnt know what or how to treat them. But, they seem to ease with a cold pack on his head for 10 mins then changing to a hot pack for 10 then keep alternating them till he feels the pain ease. After that I give him a glass of whole milk and make him drink it rapidly. I know it sounds crazy but I have discovered that this works with my son, it saves time from the dr and can be done at home. Hope this helps and good luck.
