Caffeine and Headaches

The relationship between caffeine and headache is complex. Caffeine can help you feel more alert and give you a much needed pick me up. It also narrows blood vessels, which is part of the reason it has been used in headache medications. But it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Too much caffeine can stop helping a headache and start a new headache—a rebound headache. Moderation and careful use are needed when it comes to caffeine and your headache. Visit the National Headache Foundation online at www.headaches.org and learn more about this complicated relationship.
