This product is a combination of aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine. It is used for the temporary relief of pain from conditions such as muscle aches, toothaches, menstrual cramps, or headaches (including migraine). Aspirin and acetaminophen relieve pain by keeping your body from making certain natural substances. Caffeine helps increase the effects of aspirin and acetaminophen. Important Information Aspirin can cause Reye's syndrome, a serious and sometimes fatal condition in children. An overdose of acetaminophen can damage your liver or cause death. Call your doctor at once if you have nausea, pain in your upper stomach, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, or jaundice (yellowing of your skin or eyes). Aspirin may cause stomach or intestinal bleeding, which can be fatal. Stop taking this medicine and call your doctor right away if you have skin redness or a rash that spreads and causes blistering and peeling. What should I avoid while taking Excedrin Migraine? Avoid drinking alcohol while you are taking this medication. Alcohol may increase your risk of stomach bleeding while taking aspirin, or liver damage while taking acetaminophen. Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using any other cough, cold, allergy, pain, menstrual symptom, or fever medication. Taking certain products together can cause you to get too much acetaminophen which can lead to a fatal overdose. All in all, you should ask a doctor or pharmacist if it is safe for you to take excedrin migraine. Keyword: excedrin migraine
