    Don't drink so much the night before.

    Seriously, Advil and sleep.

    Goody's Headache Powder. Best cure ever invented.

    I rarely get headaches, but when I do they are almost always tied to dehydration. So, if yours is tied to that, you might try drinking some water or gatorade.

    Or just go hair of the dog and have some booze.

    Soon as I can that's my plan Tony. I think it's a caffeine headache. I didn't drink my usual pot of coffee :p

    Get the coffee IV started now. I might have one you can borrow.

    (Other than that, I always sleep off my headaches.)

    I've got caffeine right now, but I don't think it's working!

    Try putting a hot towel or rag on your forehead. Not scalding hot, mind you.

    It works for my wife when she's suffering from serious caffeine headaches.

    Hope you feel better.

    Sleep and chicken soup, but not at the same time.

    I've been getting migraines for years, and to be honest, the best cure is time.

    I don't want to scare anyone - especially at 5:15 in the morning, but I feel sort of obligated to relay this...

    Last March, I developed a shit-kicking migraine that lasted 8 days, forced me to call in sick to work for the first time in my professional life and eventually made it so I couldn't open my eyes.
    I was 27 at the time, and it scared the crap out of me because I'd never felt that type of pain. I ended up at the doctor -- who again, because I'd never had migraines before, ran about a bazillion tests on me.
    A second doctor found two minor blood clots in my frontal lobe. Within time, he said, either one could easily have caused me to stroke. He prescribed some medicine that makes me wish I still had health insurance that covered it, and I haven't had a migraine or really much of a headache at all since I started the medication.
    Regardless -- and I tell this to anyone who is having more than the normal headache/migraine, and especially if it lasts more than a few days -- it might not be a bad idea to get it checked out.
