How will taking the same medication affect me down the road?

I have been prescribed a medication that I have to take every day… And it supposed to prevent me from getting headaches/migraines as often as I get them. It’s working great right now… But I have only been taking it for a month. What I am wondering is, down the road, is there any way that the medication won’t take effect anymore cause my body is so used to it? Is that possible?

Answer #1

Yes, your body can get use to a medication and make that medication less effective. The other side effect of long term medication use would be a dependancy on that medication. I don’t mean an addiction I mean, without that medication, you may get more headaches that when you first started.
