B2 (Riboflavin)
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) balances the adrenal system to enhance energy and stamina. It is also critical for body growth and red blood cell production. Plus, riboflavin has been shown to promote detoxification, support vision, and ease headaches and migraines.

Riboflavin deficiency is often marked by cracks around the side of the mouth, a purplish-red or magenta tongue and vertical cracks on the lips.
B6 (Pyridoxine)
Vitamin B6 helps support healthy blood flow, maintains blood pressure, and even promotes optimum cholesterol levels. It also works to reduce homocysteine, a substance that increases your risk of heart attack and stroke.

B6 can also ease many PMS symptoms, reduce sugar cravings, boost energy, and strengthen the immune system.
B12 (Cobalamin)
Vitamin B12 is necessary for the production of healthy red blood cells. It also helps to maintain healthy homocysteine levels, and arterial function supports normal cholesterol levels and blood vessel dilation and is involved in DNA synthesis. It also plays a role in energy production.

Only bacteria are capable of synthesizing B12, and as such, it is found almost entirely in animal food products due to animal-bacteria symbiosis.
Reglan (Metoclopramide)
Reglan is commonly used for short-term treatment of heartburn and other GI issues. It can also ease nausea and vomiting. Side effects can include drowsiness, dizziness, insomnia, diarrhea, anxiety, depression, decreased sexual function, swelling of hands/feet, and confusion. More serious, though rare, side effects include shaking, allergic reaction, and neuroleptic malignant syndrome.
Toradol (Ketorolac)
Toradol is a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) used to ease moderate to severe pain. It reduces inflammation, swelling, pain, and fever, and is used widely in the hospital and ER. It is intended for short-term pain relief and not for long-term pain management. Side effects, though rare, include nausea, GI upset, and dizziness. More serious side effects include kidney damage and allergic reaction.
Zofran (Ondansetron)
Zofran is often used to offset nausea and vomiting. It’s more common application is to prevent and treat side effects from chemo, postoperative nausea and Hyperemesis Gravidarum. It blocks the neurotransmitter serotonin, which triggers vomiting. Rare, mild side effects include constipation, headache, and dizziness. More serious side effects include changes in heart rhythm or allergic reaction.

THE NITTY GRITTY

One of the keys to overcoming a headache is hydration. According to one study of emergency department and inpatient management of both migraines and headaches, adequate fluid hydration and non-opioid medication use should be standard treatment.1 Three good medication options are Zofran, Reglan, and Toradol.

Zofran is an anti-nausea medication often used in chemotherapy treatment. It can also help to ease nausea and vomiting associated with headaches. In one study of 120 patients with minor head trauma, Zofran was found to significantly reduce the severity of nausea.2

Reglan is also an anti-nausea medication, used primarily to treat GI issues. In the case of headaches and migraines, Reglan (along with Benadryl) was used to treat patients in an emergency room setting with moderate to severe post-trauma headaches. After IV treatment of the medications, pain scores dropped from 47.5 to 10.9.3 Researchers concluded the treatment was an “effective and well-tolerated medication regimen for patients presenting to the ED with an acute post-traumatic headache.”

Toradol, an NSAID, is a potent anti-inflammatory. In one study, Toradol was used to treat acute migraines in 15 patients. After Toradol treatment, pain scores decreased from 4.07 to just 0.73 in two hours.4 Additionally, no side effects were reported.

In addition to medications and hydration, B vitamins are also known to reduce headache pain. B2 (riboflavin), when taken in high doses, has been shown to prevent migraines.5

B6, in particular, supports the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine, both of which are thought to play a role in migraines. B12 deficiency is associated with increased headache severity and frequency. Additionally, one study found that intranasal administration of B12 resulted in a 50 percent reduction in migraine frequency.6

Additionally, B vitamins work to reduce homocysteine. Research not only shows that increased levels of homocysteine can lead to migraines, but that the use of B6, B12, and folic acid can reduce the severity of migraine with aura.7-8

By using a combination of hydration, B vitamins, and targeted medications, you can have your headache under control and your pain a thing of the past.
