Read the package insert and see if it says it causes headaches. Most meds say they do, so it's hard to say whetehr that med gave you a headache or something else did. Try not taking it and instead take another med, such as Nexium. I take Nexium and it doesn't give me a headache.

I would not be surprised if it did. Headache seems to be on the list of almost every medications.

In real life, I haven't seen this medication cause headaches in my clinic patients.
