Smoking habits

I sometimes feel that my smoking habits are linked to the headaches I suffer regularly. Could this be true in any way?


Hello Mary Jane! Thank you for using the #asksudrexfeature. Your suspicions are very true. Headaches after smoking can be caused by the tobacco smoke, the chemicals it contains can cause the blood vessels in your brain to narrow & give you headaches. Smoking can cause dehydration, which can also trigger a headache. The best prevention is to quit smoking or at best reduce the number of cigarettes you take daily. Reduce the risk of headaches by drinking plenty of water & don’t smoke on an empty stomach. If you still experience headaches after smoking, Sudrex Headache & Fever can help alleviate the pain.
