- CODEINE and PARACETAMOL
They both pain relief drugs. They work by blocking pain signals sent to the brain. When combined together they do an excellent job of repressing headaches. If you’re stress-free and well hydrated and even well-rested and still get morning headaches, you should probably use these drugs. They are over the counter drugs, meaning you can buy them without a prescription. So if you wake up in the morning after a good night’s rest and still feel the numbing pain in the morning, it’s advisable to administer these drugs to yourself.
Take note that codeine is very addictive and can easily get a hold of you, so the administration of the drug should last only a few days.
