Menstrual headaches generally have no special requirements for the medication to be taken.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may be considered if the pain is not prolonged but is severe.
If the pain is prolonged you may also consider using a proprietary Chinese medicine, which is slower acting but can help regulate vascular function and can reduce the frequency and cycle of headache attacks.
Strong vasoconstrictors such as ergotamines may also be used if the above drugs are still not effective.
All of the above medications need to be taken under the supervision of a doctor.
