Headaches in Children

Headaches can sometimes be a side effect of medications.

Talk to your doctor about whether the medication your child is taking may be causing his or her headaches.

If your doctor doesn't think that the medication is causing it, or if the headaches don't go away after you stop the medication, make an appointment with your doctor for your child to be fully checked out for other causes.
