Can you take excedrine migraine after taking sumatriptan?

Yes, appropriate. If the sumatriptan does not substantially stop the headache by 2 hrs, can use a rescue agent such as Excedrin migraine, or the prescription powder, Cambia.
You can. As there is no interaction between the two medications. But you should always let your doctor know that you may be using medications in combination, even if one is over the counter as Excedrin Migraine is.
