Carol, a woman in the audience of the Dr. Oz show, asked Doctor Oz if is it dangerous that she takes Over The Counter medicine regularly. In fact, she calculated that she took 100,000 over the counter pills so far.
Dr. Oz said that if you are getting headaches more than 2 or 3 times a week, these are called rebound headaches and your body is trying to tell you something. Dr. Oz said that 100,000 of just about anything can’t be good for you. He also warned Carol that when she goes off of the Over The Counter medicine, she is likely to get headaches from the lack of drugs. So it has an addictive nature, in that you will have to take them in order to keep headaches from coming back.
