From this study (2 months ago):
which one of these drugs can be causing my severe nausea and headache. Getting worse the longer I am taking the drugs.
From this study (3 months ago):
very seldom had headaches before heart attack and now have bad headaches every day. The new meds I'm taking are Lisinopril 10 mg 1/2 tab at breakfast, glucotrol 5 mg 1 at breakfast and metoprolol tartrate 25 mg 1/2 tab twice a day.
From this study (6 months ago):
The only time the pain is partially releaved is lying in a prone position with heat on my posterior neck and the back of my head. The pain strats in my shoulders and neck and radiates up the back of my head.
