Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Was the medicine started as per directions of a psychiatrist? Headache is a common side effect of many anti-depressants if started at a higher dose. Also, headache could be due to other causes also. If headache was there before start of medicines, obviously other causes are involved. Very often headache is a symptom of anxiety/ depression. So I think an evaluation by a psychiatrist is warranted. Hope that answers your question. Take care!

It can be viral or it can also be bacterial infection. You should visit a doctor if the symptoms becomes worsen. Till then take good care of your health by eating healthy food and avoiding junk food. Have lots of water. Take rest. If the symptoms keep repeating every now and then, it's better to take Homeopathy which is very effective to remove such tendencies.

In recent times, I'm getting headache frequently. I was recently diagnosed with pre hypertension @ 126-130/83-87 as observed in between 3 days once during the last one month. My family physician told me this is NOT due to hypertension, but due to fatigue. And he suggested me NO medicine for hypertension and ONLY advised lifestyle changes. I seek further clarifications in this regard plz.

BP can be asymptomatic .Symptoms can occur if it is very high like headache giddiness. You can control and reverse your pre hypertension to normal with diet and lifestyle changes Cut down salt exercise daily eat plant based foods Cut down oil and all processed foods cook your own food. Sleep at least 8 hrs Do meditation, yoga etc. If you want complete reversal of blood pressure take a consult because there are certain tests which you have to do which your Dr. might not be aware because of lack of nutrition knowledge.
