Have you stopped rebounding your medication, also. Replace with preventative meds like Pamelor, Elavil, Topamax, Depakote, Zonergran, Beta Blockers, or Calcium Channel Blockers?

In brief: Maybe a Pill Problem

Migraine patients often use medication to stop headaches.
If these medications are used more than once a week they can cause rebound headaches. Relaxation therapy, acupuncture and massage have all been shown to be effective for headache. Herbs such as feverfew and butterbur have also been shown to be effective. You should discuss these options with your physician.
