I was going through my past reviews over the weekend and came to the realization that I have never taken the time to sit down and write one about Excedrin Migraine. I was amazed by this considering it is the one medicine I take on a regular basis and one of very few I have nothing but loyalty to.
I sit in front of a computer all week at work and that, coupled with the fact I work in an office with florescent lighting, will result in me occasionally getting a headache behind my eyes. Most of the time, it is something that I can get rid of on my own (I just take a 10 minute break and sit in my car with my eyes closed). But, there are also times when I can’t seem to shake it and, by the time I get home, my head is absolutely pounding.
Up until a couple years ago, I would have to go into our room and lie down simply because I could not function. I didn’t even bother trying to take any medicine for it because the items I had tried, like Tylenol and Ibuprofen didn’t do a thing for me. Of course, that was before a co-worker recommended the Excedrin Migraine to me.
The reason I love this product as much as I do is it makes me functional again. I have had absolutely horrible headaches; the kind that prevented me doing simple tasks like driving. And, after taking two Excedrin Migraine, the headaches simply disappear.
What really impresses me about this product every time I use it is how fast it works. I won’t say it works instantly and, there are times when it might take up to an hour. But, it tackles even the worst of my headaches in a reasonable amount of time so I don’t end up out of commission all evening long.
Even more important is how long this product works. I have had other medicines that managed to get rid of some of my headaches. But, those medicines only worked for maybe a few hours. With a few rare exceptions, I have not had to take the Excedrin Migraine more than once.
In terms of side effects, I haven’t experienced too many. I wouldn’t recommend taking this (or any pill) on an empty stomach and, because it does contain caffeine, I would recommend watching how many caffeinated beverages you drink (especially if you take it before going to bed). However, unlike many other pills, I can honestly say this product has never made me sicker.
If you suffer from headaches and need quick, lasting relief, I would recommend buying this product.
