I've been having a lot of headaches lately. I used to get them, but thought that was under control. In the past couple of weeks I've had several pretty severe headaches - one side of my head, generally, or maybe in the back of my head. I'm on plaquenil, prednisone (just 12.5 mg now) imuran, neurontin and supplements (calcium, Omega 3, a good multi and an antioxidant supp.) I've been taking the occasional ibuprofen for the headaches, but I'm worried about what that might do to my stomach when I'm also taking a steroid. Is this a big risk? Tylenol just doesn't seem to do it, and that carries it's own set of risks. I do have pain meds (Lortab) but really hate to take narcotics for a headache. Any suggestions?
