Hi there, unfortunately, while treating headache, the pain medications caused gastritis or inflammation of the stomach as well. This can worsen headache as vomiting causes dehydration and pressure on the scalp muscles and blood vessels. He may be having a migraine attack or sometimes a serious infection in the brain. This cannot be managed at home since you exhausted the available over the counter medications. He will need further evaluation in the ER. If no infection, then headache can be managed with sumatriptan and naproxen. Nausea, vomiting can be managed with promethazine. Stomach pain with ranitidine. Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
