17 Oct 2011 I wake up with horrible headaches and Excedrin takes them away in less than 1/2 hr. Excedrin is the only medication I now take for these lousy headaches. I have allergies and Excedrin helps open up my sinuses.

17 Sep 2011 I only use this for my headaches if it gets so bad that I cannot tolerate the pain. Since I usually do not take medication, this helps get rid of my headaches pretty quickly
