Headache splitter
Relief is on the way for longtime sufferers. New research shows that a combination of low-dose tricyclic antidepressants and stress-management training can significantly reduce the severity and frequency of chronic tension headches, which strike millions of people.

The regimen is for people with mild to moderate head pain that occurs more than 15 days a month for at least six months. Although antidepressants require a prescription, they may be a better choice than over- the counter pain relievers, which can trigger rebound attacks in chronic sufferers.
