So, just which medications can cause MOH? Triptans. A point of confusion has been whether triptans such as sumatriptan (Imitrex) could cause MOH. Studies have now been published demonstrating MOH resulting from sumatriptan (Imitrex) naratriptan (Amerge), zolmitriptan (Zomig), and rizatriptan (Maxalt).

“Common culprits in rebound (medication over-use) headaches include over the counter remedies such as Excedrin, and prescription medications such as Fioricet, narcotics, or triptans (such as Imitrex).”
