Hi thank you for your initial answer,
I would like you to expand on the meaning of what you wrote:
1. "Both the medications inhibit the prostaglandin synthesis thereby preventing the headache"
So the prostaglandin synthesis, is it common/ present in every headache? What is it? Is that what causes the pain of a headache?
