Overuse of Medication Increases Risk of Chronic Migraine

A news release from the American Academy of Neurology discusses a study that found people who took barbiturates or opioids for only eight days a month were twice as likely to develop chronic migraine headaches than those who did not take these drugs. The medications they studied included codeine, butalbital and oxycodone.  This study further supports the belief that people with migraine headaches should limit their use of these medications.
