Portuguese term or phrase: cefaleta etc mistake in questioning!!!
Sorry, in relation to my last question I meant to say a "colateral effect" not a counter-indication!

chronic headache
Explanation:
Hi,
the word cefaleta does not exist in the portuguese language. Of that much I am sure.I agree with colleague Ferrand that its a misspelling and should read cefaleia which in medical terms means in fact "chronic headache". Some dictionaries translate cefaleia as sick headache...
Hope it helps a bit...
