What to take for menstrual headache

Menstrual headaches generally have no special requirements for the medications to be taken.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may be considered if the pain is not prolonged but severe in severity.
If the pain is prolonged you may also consider the use of proprietary Chinese medicines, which have a slower onset of action but can help regulate vascular function and can reduce the frequency and shorten the cycle of headache attacks.
If the above drugs are still ineffective, strong vasoconstrictive drugs such as ergotamines may also be used.
All of the above drugs need to be taken under the guidance of a doctor.
