Migraine Sufferers Scramble for Relief After Excedrin Recall Beware of self medicating yourself with Excederin Migraine Tablets. I was such a believer, thinking Excederine was my only hope. That was until I went to a neurologist and found I had Rebound Migraine Headaches because of the excessive Excederine I was taking! I had to go cold turkey off the Excederne and was given pain medication and it was a task that difficult but today I am headache free! For those times I have a mild headache that I can't work through, I rely on a generic ibuprofen, one small tablet when I was taking about 12 Excederin a day before my visit with the Dr. So, for Migraine Sufferers, see a good neurologist and you won't be sorry. He changed my life!
