In brief: Probably
Although rebound headaches are more common from medicines like nsaids (motrin, aleve, (naproxen) etc), it is possible to get rebound headaches from many things, even caffeine.
Slowly backing off of medications is user a safer bet.

Yes it can. Chronic use of any as needed headache or pain medication can cause rebound headaches when stopped.
