I have chronic daily headaches for over 50 years . What were once periodic debilitating classic migraines they are now daily headaches ranging from 6-9 on my system. a 10 means I just lie in bed. A 6-9 I carry on with my life as normal just in pain. I feel I may be suffereing from rebound headaches. I am on 200 mg of tramadol slow release (durela) plus 2-6 Tylenol 1s or 2s. Daily. I was on hi dosages of oxycodone 160mg But weaned myself off a number of years ago.
I am now free of codeine for 2 weeks and feel better. headaches now 2-3 . With CBD oil .
Is tramadol slow release as likely to cause rebound headaches as codeine? Do I need to wean off tramadol too to get out of rebound cycle ?
