To prevent medication overuse headache, stick to the ‘10-20 rule’:
Do not use headache medications or special migraine drugs on more than 10 days per month.
At least 20 days every month should be drug-free.
Keep track of your medication by making a note every time you use headache medicines. Record your medication use in a calendar or use the medication counter in the Prevent-headache.org app.
If you are already experiencing medication overuse headache, contact a doctor immediately.
