Advice & Tips: I take Excedrin at the first sign of a headache, basically to take the edge off of any migraine that may be forming. It never takes the whole thing away, but it helps to reduce the pain enough that I don't tense up and make it worse. The only type of Excedrin that works for me is the regular (original) tablets, extra strength. All of the other varieties, such as the capsules, have much less of a positive impact on my headaches.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: headaches, upset stomach, jittery feeling, stomach pain
