Never taken prescription butalapap. I have a horrible headache. Flu and fever. How likely is this to cause side effect? How strong is it? Says only 325 acetametaphin. If not work, can I take excedrin?

In brief: Possibly the flu

The symptoms you are describing are unusual for butalapap.
More likely you have the actual flu, as it is flu season and your symptoms sound just like the flu. I suggest that you see your doctor today. If it is less than 72 hours since the symptoms started, and you do have the flu, you can be started on an anti flu medication to improve recovery. Good luck.
