I haven't used it. Mainly because I'm an alieve fan myself. I would be a bit nervous about using a recalled product so close to it being put back on the shelf. I might have to wait another year or so.

There is nothing like Excedrine! It is the absolute best for headaches! I'm so glad it is back. Rejoice!

There shouldn't be a problem with this product once back on the shelf. There was never a problem with the product in the first place. The problem was with packaging. As far as a user of Excedrin for Migraines staying with a product replacement is concerned. I don't believe a regular user of Excedrin would find a true replacement product. Only non users and so called experts think there is no difference. Just because a product may say they have the same ingredients as the next guy, does not mean the outcome will be the same. Coffee is coffee, right? If so, then why do you swear by a particular coffee brand or house? Coffee beans is coffee beans and then there is water.

Glad Excedrin is back and my headaches are gone! I have my 100 count bottle that I got from Krogers in November. When I went to find some headache medicine, I thought that I was seeing things. I had a moment when I saw the box and went yea!! People thought I was crazy! I happily expressed that Execedrin was back!!!!! :)

I noticed that Excedrin was back on the shelf last week. BUT, I did notice that it always said right on the outside of the package, "The Headache Medicine". Now it doesn't say that anymore. It's been gone so long, that I was buying CVS brand headache medicine, and found that it did the trick. I was a "HUGE" fan of Excedrin my entire life. I find it puzzling that Excedrin didn't put its product on sale when it returned to the shelf, hoping to regain customer loyalty. Store brand is MUCH less expensive, and did the trick for me.

ADot they probably thought the base was still there waiting. But when people have needs, they will find another supplier. I'm glad you have something that helps you.

I assume you have your bottle NeatGifts. I think with any product there are things that can't be a substitute. You are right I only like Maxwell House and French Vanilla Coffeemate; however, I won't judge someone who may feel differently. That's their choice.

I'm very happy for you Susan. No more headaches for you! Well at least not for too long once you pop some Excedrine!
Candace Jarrett January 30, 2013 at 08:22 PM
I love Aleve also. Great minds I tell you.
Candace Jarrett January 30, 2013 at 08:22 PM
I'm happy for you mumford86. I'm a big Aleve fan and loyal to it so I understand the excitement.
