Rebound Headaches

If you frequently take pain medication for headaches, migraines or other health problems, you can build up a tolerance to them. As a result, you may often find that as soon as the medicine wears off, you will experience a rebound headache.

What can you do for a rebound headache? If they are caused by taking over-the-counter pain relievers too often or in too large a dose, cutting down can help. For headaches that result from prescription medications, you may need to be under the care of a doctor in order to treat your rebound headaches.
