In brief: Returning headache
Rebound headache can occur with the frequent, sometimes more than daily use of certain medication treatments for the headache.
It is a vicious cycle of :headache then take a medication, headache pain decreases or is relieved and then it returns. Some of the commonly overused medications are tylenol, (acetaminophen) caffeine or combination meds with these.
