Which is better and the most effective tylenol (acetaminophen) or Excedrin for tension headache / migraine?
Depends: Excedrin contains tylenol (or acetaminophen)/caffeine/aspirin. For some people, tylenol alone can help with their headache.

In both cases, it will not treat/cure your headache, but it will help with the pain. ...Read more

As a matter of fact, a healthy adult could even take another dose 4 hours after the first one. So, your headache probably resolved on its own with the Tylenol (acetaminophen) having minimum effect.

It's possible: Headaches could have one of many possible causes. A coumadin-related headache would be very worrisome since it could be caused by a bleed in your head. The higher your inr (coumadin (warfarin) blood test), the greater the risk of a bleed if you hit your head. High blood pressure and migraine are two other causes and the list of others is long. Get your inr and BP checked; tell your md of your headaches. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
