Rebound headaches

Rebound headaches, also known as medication overuse headaches may occur if you repeatedly use medication to try and treat your migraine headaches. (Sometimes it can occur with excess caffeine.)

Here are some suggestions to help:

1) consult your medical practitioner about the medication you are using, whether it is prescribed or not. He/She should be able to advise as to whether it is safe to stop, or whether you should just reduce the medication gradually. Do not stop or change prescribed medicines without the advice of your doctor.

2) Instead of immediately reaching for medication to stop your migraine, try a natural approach – for instance those receommended in my ebook Natural Migraine Alternative

3) Use relaxation or stress reduction techniques. Try massages to reduce tension headaches.

3) Reduce your stress levels
