Hi,
I have migraines for over 30 years and before there were the new meds, there was excedrin which was the only things that ever worked, if it worked. Now I am taking imitrex and I have to stay away from the excedrin because of the stomach pain it causes me. Migraine excedrine and regular excedrine are the same formulas, I checked it for myself and with a pharmacist. The aspirin and the caffeine in the excedrin hurt the lining of your stomach and can be causing you to have reflux. Also the acetominophen that's in it can hurt your liver. Why don't you ask your doctor to prescribe some migraine meds for your migraines such as imitrex or amerge? They won't hurt your stomach and may take away those migraines faster.
