headaches
I have always been prone to headaches. Excedrin was the only thing that helps. Taking so many of them I an now taking codeine/fioricet. My think is better to take one stronger then Excedrin all day.Anyone have advise on this?

so how is that working for you? I know about headaches, I use to to get migraines. now I basically have chronic headaches,as well as other pains ect. my md. lets me take vicoprofin. no more than 30 a month. I can subsidise(sp) with 200mg ibuprofin. Of course it is not enough. but other wise I am popping alot of advil a lot. I have hcv and cirrosis. It is definetly a toss up. but yeah, take it up with M.D.  Who is perscribing your codiene?     Good luck with this. balance is the key          Dasflueff....

the codeine/firoricet works great. I'm just leary of the tylenol. My MD knows my situation and gives me the prescription. Hasn't recommended anything else. I'll have to look up vicoprofin. I haven't heard of it before. The Excedrin always worked for me until recently. I wake up every morning with headaches, strange. I'll check out maxsal too.
Thanks, that's two new things to look into.

sounds like you are getting rebound headaches from taking pain meds so often.

What's your caffeine intake?

I did some research on migraines and helped me out a lot, most of mine were diet related.
