It should be.: Excedrin contains aspirin, acetaminophen, and a significant amount of caffeine. If you don't have a significant history of peptic ulcers or poorly controlled blood pressure you should be fine. Be aware that frequent use of Excedrin will likely result in rebound headaches when you don't take it, i.e, caffeine withdraw headaches. Cheers!
