Advice & Tips: Tylenol with codeine has no effect on my migraines or cluster headaches, but works wonders for muscle aches and spasms when they're enough to keep me awake at night. I usually take it 30 minutes before bed so that when it makes me drowsy, I can just lay down and not worry about it. I never use this before a day of work, for fear of not waking up to the alarm.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: stomach pain, upset stomach

Advice & Tips: The Tylenol 3 was effective at reducing the pain, and usually provided relief for several hours. If the pain was acute at bedtime or I was sleep-deprived, I might take 1/2 or whole 5 mg tablet Oxycodone at bedtime as needed. One tablet usually resulted in a good sleep. If pain was less acute during day, I might take one 400 mg tablet Advil Extra Strength as needed.
