During the headache it would help relieve it. Also the Wellpatch for Migraines worked AWESOME!!!!! I went to the pharmacy area at Walmart and found them there. I stuck one on drank a bottle of gatorade and closed my eyes, it was the first time in 2 weeks that I slept for more than 2 hours before waking up. It was fabulous!

Wellpatches are my cure, too, but they don't have them at walmart here If they don't have them at your walmart, check Eckerd/Riteaid and CVS or other pharmacies. I would drink Gatorade and put a wellpatch on and it helped a lot especially if I was at work and couldn't sleep it off.
