I posted a day ago about a strange painless migraine I was having.  The pain started a couple hours later.  I took Excederine.  It lessened the pain and I went to bed.  I dreamt a lot and woke a couple of times through the night.  I woke up with the headache.  I took two Excederine, went to teach vacation Bible School ( the pain came and went all morning especially when things got loud.)  Now I'm home and its getting worse.  It's been managable pain the whole time, but I think I'm just getting exhausted from this ache in my head and mild nausea.  I can cope, but I'm tired.  I hope it ends soon.  Should I take MORE Excederine?  I've never had one last this long and the pills do lessen or negate the pain.  I hope it doesn't last much longer, its mild but sooo long.  I'm trying so hard not to let these take over my life if I can help it.
Thanks for listening.  I think I'll try some icepacks before I take more pills.

Hi Kate,

What does the info that comes with the Excederine say about dosage, got a feeling you cannot have more than two in 24 hours! Also how often do you take this becuase I am concerned that there is an addictive element of this drug, and you may cause rebound headache - I have had that and it is not nice!!! - a very difficult to get rid of!

It is a good idea to go for the icepacks first, well done! Let us know how you get on, hope it goes very soon.

Take care Ann
