Is Excedrin safe while pregnant? Acetaminophen, aspirin, caffeine combo pill. 

Is Excedrin safe while pregnant? Acetaminophen, aspirin, caffeine combo pill. 

No: While Acetaminophen is safe, Aspirin is linked to an increased rate of miscarriages if used in the first trimester and to a premature closure of the ductus arteriosus (a baby vessel in the fetus) if used in the third trimester. Caffeine must be limited during the pregnancy as well due to potential adverse effects on the fetus. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be tried for pain related complaints. ...Read more

What pain killer gets rid of severe headaches tied to menstruation, PMS? Nothing works. Tried Ibuprofen, Tylenol, (acetaminophen) aspirin, naproxen atdiff. times  Ideas?

Addition of caffeine: For these types of headaches, without getting into prescription medication, and anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen, combined with caffeine(i.e. coffee or Mountain Dew) often helps. An ice pack 15 to 20 minutes at a time is also helpful as is stretching affected neck, etc. muscles. ...Read more

Debilitating migraines, 6 weeks pregnant, taking fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) daily. Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) or hydrocodone during pregnancy, which has less effect on embryo and fetus?

Debilitating migraines, 6 weeks pregnant, taking fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) daily. Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) or hydrocodone during pregnancy, which has less effect on embryo and fetus?

Not advise either: Some obstetricians feel that hydrocodone is relatively safe during pregnancy, but in my opinion, best to avoid if possible. Would not recommend use of Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) in most patients with migraine, especially pregnancy, as it is in the barbiturate family, and has habituation risk. Have found that breathing 100% oxygen as needed is useful and safe. As pregnancy proceeds your headaches should lessen. ...Read more

I have very severe migraines. Will fiorinal with codeine (aspirin butalbital caffeine and codeine) help?

I have very severe migraines. Will fiorinal with codeine (aspirin butalbital caffeine and codeine) help?

Yes and no: Fiorinal (aspirin butalbital and caffeine) and Codeine are painkillers which can block the pain for a while (and cause drowsiness, other side effects & addiction), but will not get rid of the underlying problem. If you get these severe migraines more than 3 or 4 times a year, or if they last for more than half a day, talk to your doctor about migraine-specific treatments to prevent them or stop them in their tracks. ...Read more
