When this class of drugs was first introduced it was thought that they would not cause rebound.
In the last 3 years or so I've found a small but growing number of articles in medical literature which acknowledge that triptans can, indeed, cause rebound headache for some folks.
Clearly, this a major argument for working hard to find preventive meds or combinations of meds which reduce/prevent attacks.
