Drug-Induced Headache is one of the less common headaches. It's quite
ironic that the abuse of frequent use of medications used to relieve the
symptoms of a headache can actually end up perpetuation the headache or
cause new headaches, according to Stephen D. Siberstein, MD.
Over the counter or prescription drugs should not be used too often. Some
of the medications that lead to the development of drug-induced headaches
include the following: aspirin, Tylenol, Excedrin, Anacin, Demerol, Vicodin,
Percocet, Darvon, Xanex, Fiorinal, oral contraceptives, tetracycline,
heart medications, anticoagulants, and Dilantin.
