Rebound headaches

For some people it’s the headache remedies themselves - especially pills containing caffeine or codeine - that are believed to be the culprits in causing so-called rebound or chronic daily headaches.

Triggers:

      • Overuse of headache treatment medicines

      • Especially pills containing caffeine or codeine

Facts to note:

      • Cause a dull, throbbing ache on both sides the head

      • Do not cause sensitivity to light or sound
