    yup, there's asprin in there :(

    Excedrin Migraine is a nonprescription pain reliever that contains acetaminophen, aspirin, and therapeutically active caffeine. Most doctors know that this combination of ingredients is very effective for treating headaches. In fact, some prescription headache pain relievers contain caffeine as an active ingredient.

    what's your weather doing - did it cool down? changes in air pressure mean headache city for me, taking something helps.

    from now on stay up till at least 3 am to avoid this recurring lol :D

    Caffeine actually is supposed to help headaches, if you can believe it. My Dad got these 'cluster headaches' years ago (they still don't know what caused them) and the doc told him to start drinking regular coffee instead of decaf-he said it definately helped, although he couldn't sleep at night :D

    It's something to do with shrinking the blood vessels I think. When you have a headache, your blood vessels are enlarged, caffeine shrinks them, less pressure. Something like that. Caffeine addicts' (like me) are used to small blood vessels, when they don't get any caffeine for a bit, the vessels enlarge again, causing headache. Drink caffeine to get rid of headache, addiction continues...vicious circle I'm currently trapped in lol
