Excedrin Migraine is an over-the-counter medication used to treat migraine headaches. Excedrin Migraine is a combination drug composed of acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine.
Acetaminophen is an analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). Acetaminophen is believed to work by altering the body’s perception of pain. Aspirin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It is believed that Aspirin helps treat migraines by suppressing substances that contribute to inflammation and pain signals. Caffeine is a stimulant and a vasoconstrictor. Caffeine is believed to work in migraines by narrowing the blood vessels in the brain.
