Excedrin Shortage: Is your migraine medicine in short supply? Dr. Khare shares alternatives
Anyone who suffers from migraines knows that they can derail your entire day (or days) very quickly. That’s why many fans of the popular pain reliever, Excedrin, may initially panic when they hear the company has temporarily halted production of the over-the-counter medication. But don’t worry, there are alternatives.
“Excedrin is simply a combination of aspirin, acetaminophen and caffeine,” said Dr. Rahul Khare of Innovative Care. “Frequent migraine sufferers should be able to find relief by taking a regular strength acetaminophen, like Tylenol, along with an aspirin, followed by a cup of coffee. If you have never experienced a migraine before however, contact your doctor.”
