... Strength but it cost more and the max daily dosage is different?
I am convinced its nothing more then a sales tactic. They come out with these things when the generics come out. Now they have to make it special somehow so they slap the word migraine on the label and sell it that way. I believe that you and I are the only ones convinced that it has no more effect then regular excedrin.
When the product first came on the market, the company said that it was the same. Because they discovered that Excedrin was so effective on migraines they put information about migraines they had to call it Excedrin Migraine. I hope I explained that well.
I've been using Regular Excedrin for as long as I remember. It works as a charm for migraines. If I needed a faster relief I used to dissolve it in a little water first to get a quick relief. When I tried Excedrin Migraine I noticed that it kicked in just 15 minutes and I was able to feel the caffeine rush very fast ( I am not a coffee of black tea drinker)
I think the absorption is faster maybe due to the different coating, which makes it dissolve faster giving a much needed fast relief!!!
My friend swears that one works better than the other but I know that taking the same thing doesn't always work the same... some headaches are just tougher than others. The same thing is true with Benadryl and almost any OTC sleep aid... it is just diphenhydramine-hydrochloride. It pays to look into these things when you can!
I know the ingredients say they are the same thing but the extra strength doesn’t do squat for my migraine. The migraine one is the only one that works. Can’t wait til it starts kicking in. I took the ES this morning and nothing!
Here's what I know. Years ago I was getting the aura at work and forgot my bottle so I bought a very small bottle of Excedrin Migraine. It was so small that I couldn't read the label. I called them to complain and what they told me readily on the phone was that the ingredients are identical but the instructions for how often to take it are different for a migraine. So that's the difference. They don't pretend that there are better ingredients in it, it's just different instructions. Everywhere I've bought it the price is exactly the same as Excedrin extra strength so I don't see where they're trying to make any extra money out of it.
