Does Excedrin Extra Strenght Make you Nauseous?

Hi guys,

I'm a writer and have to spend a large amount of time on the computer - the result? Headaches. I'd had a headache for several days - behind my eyes and all around my neck and head. I took an Excedrin to "break" the headache and then ended up getting really nauseous. I'm still nauseous. I even had to take a phenregan and it didn't help very much. I also had extreme jitters - I very very rarely drink caffine. The headache is back now.

Has anyone else had this problem? It's worrying me now because vomiting and chills had landed me in the ER a few months back with which they thought was a result of an ovarian cyst of inflammed intestine. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I can no longer take any type of NSAID for pain relief... pretty much sucks. It tears up my stomach. How often do you have to take it? Have you had a eye checkup recently? they do make glasses specific for computer use.

I'm sorry you've had the same probelms with headache meds. Thanks for replying. And thanks for the advice about the glasses. I didn't know that. I will make an appointment. It would be so wonderful not to have computer headaches everyday. You're a dear, thanks!
