Many headache sufferers don't realize that frequent use ofanalgesics can actually make their headaches WORSE.
As little as 1,000 mg/day of aspirin or acetaminophen can leadto rebound headaches. Headaches can also be worsened by frequent useof ergotamine...caffeine...opioids...butalbital...and sumatriptan.
Rebound headaches are usually persistent, low grade headaches.They're more common in the morning...after the analgesic has worn off.
