Both NSAIDS and aspirin can cause bleeding, as they tend to thin the blood. I would take Tylenol instead of the Excedrin. You can alternate the Advil and Tylenol, but don't take any more than is recommended on the bottle and I wouldn't take both for more than one day. When alternating, you should wait 2-4 hours, preferably 4, before you take the other med. Hope this helps.
When I have an aura before a migraine I take one Tylenol and one advil. Never take three Advil your asking for problems. Try an ice pack on the back of your neck for 15 minutes and go rest in a dark quiet room.
It should get better,
The Exedrine Migraine has caffeine in it, which probably helps the migraine. You can't take it so close to the Advil, so try drinking a soda that has caffeine in it, or a strong cup of coffee. That way you can at least get in one effective ingredient. Hope it helps - EJ23
When you say an "optic migraine" what symptoms are you having & have you seen a dr about these types of migraine. I have what they call "hemicranial migraines"
They are like a migraine but almost all of the pain is in One eye.. It feels like someone is taking a knife into my eye socket & twisting it constantly. I take a daily preventon med & Zomig nasal spray to abort the migraine
