Excedrin & Anxiety

ok maybe i have been living on another planet or something but i just noticed that Excedrin has 65mg of Caffeine in each pill so thats 130mg total for the rec. dose.. has anyone ever had any problems with their anxiety acting up from taking an excedrin? I am wondering because i remember it was about the only thing that helped my headaches in the past but i also wasnt dealing with anxiety at the time. i know there are other options out there without caffeine in them but they do little for me.

Re: Excedrin & Anxiety

Advil etc, is about the only thing that I don't mind to take for a headache with my anxiety/panic. Had taken it all the time before and it didnt induce anxiety further for me. I had even cut off all caffiene as much as possible years later, but the occasional Excedrin, I don't believe will make your anxiety spiral out of control. It clears your system within a few hours anyway (reason you can take multiple dosages a day), and better to have no headache, than suffer all day half sick with one.
