Specializes in Pain Management

Difficult to say.: You will become tolerant (takes more to achieve same effect) and physically addicted (you will feel poorly when u stop taking) fairly quickly at those doses - 1w-6w? I certainly suggest you see a headache specialist (neurologist, pain doc) - there are better medications for long-term use. Hope this helps.
