Aripiprazole, a dopamine D2 receptor partial agonist, has been used to treat schizophrenia and might be effective for alcohol dependence and craving. We treated a 53-year-old woman with refractory medication overuse headache, which was successfully treated with aripiprazole. Our experience suggests that aripiprazole may be effective for patients with medication overuse headache.
