NSAIDS & triptans - danger of medication overuse headache?

Do NSAIDS and triptans count together for the danger of Medicine overdose headaches?

or do they only count separately? Is Tylenol safe if tritans/NSAids have already been used 3 times

  1. Hi there omdw,
    Thanks so much for reaching out. Medication overuse can certainly be challenging to avoid. I thought I'd provide you with this article as it provides a pretty comprehensive review of possible combinations and general criteria to avoid MOH. The article is Help! How Can I Not Overuse Migraine Medications?. Thanks for your question! Best, Joanna (Migraine.com Team)

    1. Very many thanks
