Is tramadol used for migraine headaches?

- migraine, headache, pain, codeine, tramadol
Trying to find alternative to narcotics such as codeine combinations. Have read pros and cons about this medication, but nothing specific to headaches, only acute pain. Remember a doctor prescribing it some years ago. Anyone have experience with it in this category?

Opiates usually cause rebound headaches after awhile and most doctors don't prescribe them anymore for headaches. Tramadol is addictive although for some reason the manufacturer got it listed as a non opiate pain killer. I would try Lyrica... Good luck... Dave
