Excedrin Addiction

I have battled an addiction to Excedrin for almost 15 years now, and can't seem to stop it for good. Is anyone else struggling with this? If so, have you had any success in weaning yourself off?

Yes, it has caffeine, but the combination of ingredients seems to have other addictive effects on people. Have googled it and found that many people are struggling with dependence. I take 6 a day at this point, despite my fear and attempts to stop and cut down many times before. I am clearly psychologically as well as physically addicted.

Just looking for others in same boat.

I excesive use of caffine,aspirine and acetominaphine can cause severe stomach problems . Using to much excedrine caused my ulcer and is contributing to my sleep problems.
