Are Headaches Keeping You from Sleeping?

If tension headaches are keeping you from sleeping there are options.  Researchers say that people with chronic tension headaches who took 3 mg of melatonin daily for three months reported six fewer episodes a month and the headaches they did get were less painful due to the sleep inducing supplement. Most antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds may help counter the inflammatory enzyme that trigger head pain.  So if your doctor says it's safe to take melatonin take one tablet before bedtime to prevent headaches and get a good night sleep.
