Pharmacology - Cocaine causing headaches similar to depression meds?

    So when doing coke on a regular basis (maybe 0.2g a day) I've noticed that I've been getting mild headaches. I got to thinking that coke acts on many of the same neurotransmitters and in the same way that depression meds do - a re-uptake inhibitor. As someone who has been on many over the years, when you start a new depression med one or up the dose, headaches are usually soon to follow until your body gets used to it and these feel much the same although shorter lasting.

    I wonder if regular coke use is working the same way? I know that headaches can happen when folks crash, though I've never experienced any kind of crash, but this is usually during the 30-60 min after use.

    Did that make sense?
