xalatan and headaches

Has anyone found an alternate medicine to avoid headaches ? I have only been taking xalatan about a month, but have a bad headache every single day from the time I wake up to sleep. Also having mild flu-type symptoms in the afternoon most days, borderline nausea and fatigue.

When I mentioned these problems to my opthamologist, he first simply stated that there was no link, then that his patients had never complained of this before. He said that the link with headaches from the medical literature is not really meaningful. I'm not sure how to proceed as it is very easy to find glaucoma specialists on the internet who state up front that there is a link between headaches and xalatan. Is it all in my head ?
