I get frequent headaches and the only product I reach for is Excedrin extra strength. I've tried all the others and Excedrin is the only one that works for me. Luckily, I stock pile it since it was off the market for a while. Thank goodness it's back and still as good as ever. If you asked me what product I couldn't live without, Excedrin would be the one. Effectiveness Excedrin really is the only product that works for my frequent headaches. One note of caution: I never take it on an empty stomach. Ease of Use I find the applets very easy to swallow. Immediacy It takes about 20 minutes to get to work on me. My husband has quicker results.
