Answer

Hi Marlene,

I was told my my allergist years ago to take my allergy medicine along with a headache reliever when I had headaches. So, frequently I have done that and it seems to work well. The headache reliever, such as ibuprofen, aspirin or acetaminophen work on the pain, while the allergy medicine works on the underlying cause of it, your nasal congestion.

But I would encourage you to check with your doctor first, since I don't know anything about you, your allergies or your headaches. You want to be sure you're doing what is right for YOU.

Take care,

Kathi
