Excedrin Migraine: has no NSAIDs, but contains aspirin, which can cross react with NSAIDs, however, if so far you had no reaction, you may still take it, but what kind of allergies to NSAIDs that you have? and is it a true allergy or side effects? if still concerned you may want to see an allergist/Immunologist, check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, good luck
