Tension headaches: Pain relievers like aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen help in treating headaches but taking too many of these pills can cause hard-to-treat rebound headaches. If you need to take these drugs often, see your doctor. Don’t give aspirin to anyone under age 19 -- it raises their chance of having a serious condition called Reye's syndrome.

Migraine headaches : One class of drug, called triptans, is the mainstay of migraine treatment. They include eletriptan (Relpax), naratriptan (Amerge), rizatriptan (Maxalt), sumatriptan (Imitrex), zolmitriptan (Zomig), and others. You can take them as pills, shots, or nasal spray. A form of ergotamine, called dihydroergotamine (DHE), also treats migraine headaches. You can get it as a shot or as a nasal spray.
