... I can state quite categorically that the analgesic rebound effect further exacerbates the cluster headaches. So you do in fact get more frequent, more painful, and longer lasting vascular headaches as a tertiary effect.

If you don't believe me then go on the following regine. For 1 week, every 6 hours take:

1000mg Paracetomal Codiene dispersable
800mg Ibuprofen Codiene dispersable
max dose Aspirin Codiene dispersable

Just mix them all up in the same glass, and initially I shit you not the anti CH effect is pretty fuckin good. Over the course of the week your condition will rapidly deteriorate to the extent that you become a total CH invalid, probably with a background classical migraine going lasting several days. You haven't experienced a real 10 until you've tried this. It beats everything. You will truely believe that the CH is about to burst a blood vessel. During your occasional 10mins relief between the 3 hour long #10 attacks you will still have that lovely rebound headpain lurking in the background also.#

The upshot is that we make a distinction between CH, rebound headaches, and rebound headache induced worsening of the CH...

Fuck that lets just take rebound headache to mean Ch made worse by analgesics.
