“I remember back when you could only get Percogesic by prescription from a doctor. Nowadays when a prescription is approved to be sold over the counter, the strength of the medication is greatly reduced, which makes it much less effective. I suffer from migraine headaches on a regular basis and am a devoted user of Percogesic, as I have found it alleviates the pain much faster than a lot of the expensive prescription medications I have tried. The only problem is that Percogesic is getting more difficult to find in the stores, so I make sure to stock up whenever I find it!”

“I get severe headaches and occasional migraines. Percogesic seems to be the ONLY thing that helps with the pain. I've tried prescription medications for treating migraines, including imitrex, and others. Nothing seemed to help as much as the percogesic, another good thing is that I don't experience any terrible side effects like I have with migraine medictions. I'd highly recommend this. I also take a few times per year (at most) to ease my cramps during my period when the pain is crippling.”

“In my earlier years I had severe migraines. I found that percogesic was very effective in lessening the severity of these. I am 78 now and in 4th stage kidney failure so I am very limited in what OTC products I can safely take. I take a prescription pain med regularly for pain from a bad knee replacement plus 2 hip replacement and severe arthiritis. I take percogesic for headaches since my pain meds do not help them while percogesic will usually stop them. I am very pleased that percogesic still does the job for me.”

“They also have the extra strength Percogesic. I LOVE it. I keep a bottle in my purse all the time. My dr is afraid to write a prescription for anything stronger than a Tylenol, so I have to depend on the Percogesic for my very frequent headaches!”

“I have severe migraines and Percogesic over the counter helps like no prescription medicine. I first tried this from a sample at a chemist in 1973. I have kept it in my cabinet since. Now I cannot find it. My bottle is out of date and am so worried. ”

“I tried percogesic for the first time when I had a recurring headache for 5 days. I tried everything to relieve the pain and nothing worked. A friend told me about percogesic and I bought some. My headache was relieved and I was able to sleep all night! It really works and I would definitely recommend it!”
