Hello, Welcome to 1mg. I am Anshul Varshney for your help. Your headache needs to be evaluated for the cause. It can be Migraine headache, or it can be stress induced headache. Ultracet is not at all the treatment of choice. It is just an option for pain relief. Discuss with your doctor about your headache and let him evaluate you with the appropriate cause and treat you. Good Luck.
