CVS Brand Headache "Excedrin" ~ Try It as a Replacement During Possible Recall Shortage

I posted yesterday about the Excedrin Recall by Norvitis.  I decided to check and see if CVS offered a brand comparable to Excedrin.  I found this from an article at Help For Headaches:
  • When you review the label, you'll find that each tablet of Excedrin Migraine contains the exact same ingredients as Extra Strength Excedrin:
    • 250 mg acetaminophen
    • 250 mg aspirin
    • 65 mg caffeine
  • Compare the brand name products to store brands:
    • 250 mg acetaminophen, 250 mg aspirin, 65 mg caffeine:
      • Extra Strength Excedrin: 250 tablets, $ 13.69¹
      • CVS brand Added Strength Headache Relief coated tablets: 275 tablets, $ 8.29
So if you are used to taking Excedrin Migraine or Excedrin Extra Strength try CVS Headache Relief Coated Tablets Added Strength.  It may even count towards the spend $30 get $10 CVS cash card deal--many of the CVS brands do.
