Menstrual migraines: You do not want to exceed the recommended dose of drugs containing Acetaminophen like Excedrin. You can add Ibuprofen as an alternative. There are better medications than these for those who suffer Migraines. A primary care doctor can help. If you truly have menstrual migraines then menstrual cycle suppression often helps prevent these headaches. See an Obgyn for options.
