Depends on what kind of Excedrin; they have different formulas. If it's plain old aspirin not only is there no problem with it it's a common prescription for heart patients as aspirin thins the blood. Answered by Caterina Orman 1 year ago.

500mg and you think that is unhealthy first why don't look the limits of acetaminophen (its 1000mg per dose and 4000mg per day before any liver damage) and that is just set to be a standard that even 12 year olds can have with out harm so anyone weighing more then a 12 year old could have more without damage my self i have had 4000mg in one dose Answered by Ernest Huerto 1 year ago.

Very dangerous---but most people want a quick fix. I've had migrane headaches before and know it's no easy thing. But keeping a food diary top see what triggers them helps---and if you got sinus problems it'll help to take care of your sinuses. Acetaminophen has been linked to liver and kidney failure and should really only be taken cautiosly..... Answered by Jolie Mccooey 1 year ago.

It isn't as bad for your liver as drinking is. A lot more people abuse alcohol than take too much excedrin. Also the aspirin in it can increase risk of internal bleeding. Answered by Alex Coteat 1 year ago.

First of all, 500mg of acetaminophen is perfectly safe. Most people take 1000mg per dose. It's safe up to 4g per day. Secondly, acetaminophen is metabolized in the kidneys, not the liver. If you're going to try to ring alarm bells for no reason, at least get the basic info straight. Answered by Cherish Eichholz 1 year ago.

Can Excedrin migraine cause vision problems?
Asked by Barb Stoor 1 year ago.

Plagued with headaches from childhood to middle age I have had many different types of headaches. Also I know of many others who have headaches which the following has helped. I AM NOT A DOCTOR but someone who is trying to help people get rid of … well, a headache. This is not meant as a substitute for seeing a Doctor which I recommend. However if you read this and follow the recommendations at the end you may find the headache goes away before the appointment date. Headaches/Migraines can be caused either (1) internally (e.g. injury to the head) or (2) externally (e.g.STRESS). What your DDS, ER and MD may not tell you are that most headaches are stress related. Even from your write up you sound stressed. They can be further broken down into the following categories and the treatment depends on depends on the type of headache you have. MIGRAINE headaches are usually one sided, more common in females and characterized by at least one of the following; sensitivity to light, pain behind one eye, throbbing, brought on by bright lights, chocolate, cheese, red wine or menstrual cycle. You can also have a visual aura around lights and things may taste odd. HYOERTENSION headaches are at the top and back of your head and throb. You usually wake up with this headache and after about 3 hours it subsides and may be caused by high blood pressure. You may need medicines to reduce your high blood pressure. CLUSTER headaches can be seen in an adolescent to adult, more common in males, one sided, usually over temple or eye area, may have a blood shot eye(s), and may wake you up at night, runny nose, sweating, tearing of the eyes, usually worse in spring or fall (allergy season) and lasts 15 min. to 2 hrs. MUSCULAR TENSION headaches feels: band-like distribution around head - like wearing a very tight head band and is brought on by stress, tension, fatigue, work. TEMPORAL Arthritis headaches are only over age 50 and are characterized by one sided of temple area, pain in jaw, burning, aching throbbing, sensitive scalp, fever and tender arteries. If you experience visual symptoms go to ER. Cervicogenic (neck caused) headaches - Pain in upper neck and back of head or pain when moving the head with reduced movement in neck area is brought on by stress, head movement and head alignment. It may be confused as it can mimic a migraine headache including nausea. If it is a head and neck related alignment you can have temporal headaches or headaches that arc from behind the ear forward. They are characterized by possible sharp pain behind your ear at the base of the skull along with correlated shoulder pain which can last for days and weeks at a time until misalignment is corrected. Medications provide only short term relief when taken. SINUS headaches are localized in nature; certain positions are worse like the nose area, steady throb, and worse in the morning. Subarachnoid Hemorrhage headaches are abrupt onset, constant stiff neck, feels like someone hit you in the head, Caused by high blood pressure, stress or aneurysm can be life threatening. BRAIN Tumor headaches are characterized by; onset morning and evening, varies from mild to severe, may throb, wakes you up at night, symptoms getting worse, neck stiffness worse than ever. SUDDURAL Hematoma headaches are caused by trauma. It is a slow bleed in the brain. People can die from this. Here is what you do for them besides making a Doctor’s appt. Migraines, muscular tension, cervicogenic, and some sinus and cluster headaches may be helped by a chiropractor. If it is sinus, you need to ask the chiropractor if they have a sinus/cranial treatment. For Hypertension, cluster, temporal arteritis and brain tumor-see a Dr. For Temporal arteritis with visual impairment, subarachnoid hemorrhage and subdural hematoma, go to the ER now. In addition to SEEING a Doctor you may consider counseling. While you are waiting for the Dr.’s and or counselor’s appt. you might try the following and end up cancelling the appts. as it may work! There are three home remedies that may work for you as they do/did for me: First drink 16 to 24 ounces of water not soda as dehydration may cause headaches. The second home remedy for all headaches that has worked for me and even my most skeptical friends is eating a banana! My MOST skeptical of friends was SO DESPERATE he eventually tried it and claims that it cures 40% of his headaches/migraines. Bananas are loaded with Potassium which helps alleviate all headaches. In addition it is very filling and an empty stomach can also aggravate a headache. Third after drinking water, eating a banana and taking your chosen OTC meds take a SHOWER. Other than that OTC meds are your only alternative. Then go take a nap. De-stress by; turning off the phone, turning off the TV, turning off the computer, and don’t watch the news! Time to do everything to DE-STRESS!!! Answered by Selina Noriega 1 year ago.

Some research suggests that at least some migraines are a form of epilepsy or are related to epilepsy. As a seizure can happen at any time, so can a migraine. Your ones, especially the tingling fingers, suggests a tumour. I don't want to scare you, but it really sounds like you have a brain tumour. Yu need to get to a doctor NOW to find out if it is, or if it's something else, which is equally serious, like an infection. I really hope you're ok and it's just bad migraines, but you really need to get it checked out. Answered by Shirly Loeper 1 year ago.
