We take Excedrin extra strength because not only does it knock out your headaches fast but also is not as hard on your stomach as some other brands. Comes in easy to open bottle and the price is a lot better than some other brands.

This is the only thing that has helped for my headaches ever. I buy the 60ct and I refill my little personal one when I need too. It’s better than taking the whole bottle. Two of these with a ton of water and 45mins. Works wonders

I don’t care what anyone says. I’ve tried every single prescription migraine medicine there is on the market, and the only thing that works for my headaches is this. For the value you’re saving so much money without having to pay for a doctor visit having a co-pay on a prescription and it’s just as effective. But I am not a doctor, so do not take any medical advice from me

This is one of the only things that knocks out a headache for me. Works better than ibuprofen in my opinion and doesn’t upset my stomach. The caffeine is a bonus.

It’s a shame that I can’t really find these anymore. I used to take this always when I had cramps, i found that they were the only ones that worked fast enough to relive my pain. The packaging was small and easy to carry around with me. It smelled like medication 🤷🏾‍♀️ 😂.

This is the only over the counter medication that relieves the pressure when I get a headache. I have tried all the other competitive products none of them work like the extra strength Excedrin. It typically takes 30 minutes and I’m wondering where my headache went. I’m not sure if It’s the combination of aspirin and caffeine that makes it work, but it’s definitely my go to.

I really like combination of aspirin with the acetaminophen in a single pill form. This is my go to you when I have a headache. I always keep a bottle on hand and as soon as I feel pressure coming on, I know how to take a pill right away. They don’t upset my stomach and leave no funny taste.

Did you know caffeine can help pain relievers work better? Excedrin extra strength tablets contains acetaminophen, aspirin, and about the same amount of caffeine that would be found in a small coffee. The caffeine helps the aspirin and acetaminophen work better, so it is what I recommend for a bad headache. If you can safely take these ingredients, and have the occasional throbbing headache, this might help you deal with Karen at work a little better :)
