Full Question: I had been having a daily headache for several years and was taking 1/2 Percocet tablets twice and sometimes 3 times a day for a total of 1 1/2 Percocet per day. I saw my doctor, and she said I should try going off the Percocet for 2 to 3 months so I did and the daily headache has just about disappeared. I continue to have a Migraine 1 to 2 per month but I take Imitrex to get rid of the Migraine. One in awhile I will get a moderate headache and take 1 Percocet to ease the pain but it seems to bring on a worse headache and sometimes a Migraine. Why does this happen? Answer : Hello; Your physician was correct in having you stop the Percocet.

You usual migraine seems quite treatable with the Imitrex. Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert About Ask the Clinician : Dr. Krusz is a recognized expert in the fields...
