i know exedrin has alot of caffiene in it which is why i usually take 1 and 1 reg tylenol but how long does it stay inyour system?
i think longer than 4-6 hours!  i woke up feeling anxious and panicky after taking at 5 last night.  anyone else affected thsi way? 
it doesn't always happen - sometimes i can drink caffiene but then sometimes i can't.  weird.  maybe it's where i am in my hormone cycle?

I can't take Execederin myself as it makes me feel all jumpy. Sounds like it really affects you much the same way. And yes, add in those female hormones and we are a mess. Maybe try drinking alot of water to see if that will help to flush it out of you. Big hugs to you!

Good Morning Hazel,

The half-life of Excedrin is 2 - 4 hours so it leaves your system completely in less than a day. Hope that helps and perhaps you would be better off with Tylenol. 

Take care and I understand how that jittery feeling works.
