Cluster headache (CH) is associated with the most severe pain of the primary headache disorders. Barriers to optimal care include misdiagnosis, diagnostic delay, undertreatment, and mismanagement. Medication-over-use headache (MOH) may further complicate CH and may present as increased CH frequency or development of a background headache, which may be featureless or have some migrainous quality. A personal or familial history of migraine appears to be strongly associated with the development of… 
Medication Overuse Headache: A Trap for the Headache Patients
TLDR
A history of analgesic use averaging more than two to three days per week in association with chronic daily headache is suggestive and the diagnosis is made when the pattern of frequent headaches fulfills the diagnostic criteria for MOH.
Medication-overuse headache: a widely recognized entity amidst ongoing debate
TLDR
The historical background of medication- overuse headache, its epidemiology, phenomenology, pathophysiology and treatment options are explored, and relevant unanswered questions are explored and the current debates in medication-overuse headache are summarized.

The definitions for chronic migraine were clarified to recognise that not all individuals improve following acute-relief drug withdrawal, but do become responsive to prophylactic medication, which had not been the case while they had been overusing.
