Hormonal headache that just won't go

I get these every month during my period, I used to take Syndol which made me sleepy but got rid of the headache. Now they've been discontinued and I don't know what else I can take. Ibuprofen and paracetamol are no help. Any ideas?

Co codamol used to help me.
Mine got so bad that I went on the mini pill.
It was a revelation.

Just in case anyone else gets these, I asked our local chemist and he Suggested Migraleave pink, they have almost the same ingredient as Syndol just a different type of antihistamine. I bought some and they worked a treat.

I get these and I take aspirin. It's the only thing that works for me. Obviously you have to check yourself if you're ok to take aspirin, but it's signficantly cheaper.

Go to your GP and get sumatriptan or rizatriptan much better than migraleve. The GP can also give you buccastem or another anti-emetic if you vomit with migraines to stop that too.

The only thing that works for me is Anadin Extra. If I catch them early enough I can take the normal ones but if it's really bad I take the soluble tablets.
