Those of us who had been regulars of About.com’s Headaches and Migraines site have waited nearly two years since they last had a “guide” on the site. I was interested and pleased a few weeks ago to see that Mark Foley, D.O., had come onboard. We need all the good, accurate info we can get out there!
In his email newsletter today, Foley sent out a link to “Tylenol Use and Headache.” It’s decent, basic information. BUT for a headache and Migraine site, it’s missing something. Aceteminophen carries a big risk for rebound/medication overuse headache if taken more than a few days a week — even if you’re not taking it for a headache or Migraine. One would think that Foley would have made mention of this fact. Too many of us have found ourselves in rebound because our doctors neglected to warn us of this.
Disappointing. Really disappointing.
