I get headaches. Not just minor ones, but 48 hour long, sharp pain, sensitive to sound and light headaches! Sometimes I think they are allergy related, sometimes hormonal. I haven't had them diagnosed as migraines, but I think they probably would fit the criteria. When I got some coupons in the mail for the new Advil Migraine, I thought I'd buy some and see if it helped. I've always taken Advil, finding it to be the best pain reliever for me.... if I take 800 milligrams, that is. But when I get one of these headaches, I can take that plus an Aleve and it doesn't help at all.
Well, I find the Advil Migraine at the grocery and the pharmacist happens to be there asking if I need any help. I tell her that I'm curious about this new product and was going to look and see what was so special about it and what the ingredients were. She was curious, too, and looked at it with me. The ingredients was 200 mgs of ibuprofen per capsule. That's it! Exactly the same as regular Advil! No caffeine (commonly added, as in Excedrin) no nothing! And you know what? The price was higher than regular Advil! The only thing different was the name and color of the box. Now, doesn't that just tick you off? Playing on the pain of migraine sufferers in such a sneaky, greedy way. Geesh! So, if you hear anyone raving about the wonderful Advil Migraine medicine and how well it works, tell them that it's all in their head....literally. lol.
