Drug-induced Headaches

more about Drug-induced Headaches


Alcohol, caffeine(N) (though small amounts of caffeine(N) can relieve a Headache), and other drugs like amphetamines, cocaine, and marijuana can induce Headaches.
Withdrawal after habitual use of coffee, tea and all other drugs and medications -- especially pain(N) killers and even OTC (over-the-counter) Headache medications -- can lead to substance withdrawal Headaches.
Analgesic and other pain(N)killers (such as Excedrin or Tylenol), if taken more frequently than twice a week, can lead to a condition known as an "analgesic rebound Headache". These Headaches develop over time and become more apparent when:
  • the user takes more and more medication, but the Headaches continue to get worse.
  • the medications appear to be less effective.
  • the user notices that their Headache is worse three to four hours after taking the medication.
  • the user's routine medications no longer work well for them.
  • the user has to take their medication to avoid severe pain(N) .
  • the user is taking more medication, and still getting no (or less) relief.
