It’s that feeling you get when your head feels like it is ready to pop and you get a dull pain across the head. You have a tension headache. It just shows up without warning. These can last 30 minutes to a few hours.
These headaches can be nipped in the bud by simple meditation or taking Painaid. The combination of its ingredients will deliver immediate help:
• Acetaminophen 110 mg.
• Aspirin (NSAID*) 162 mg.
• Caffeine 32.4 mg.
• Salicylamide (NSAID*) 152 mg.
A migraine can give you a few indicators that it may be on its way. An aura can alter your perception with flashing lights, dots, or stars and sparkles. You may also have a sensitivity to light and/or loud noises. A migraine can change your mood, make you tired with feelings of confusion, fear and memory changes. You may experience some numbness, tingling, vertigo, weakness and you may even faint. Migraines can even start during your sleep and can affect approximately 1 in 7 people. Women may be more susceptible to have a migraine around menstruation. Women going through menopause may have increased pain of a migraine. We can also put the blame on anxiety, dehydration, exercise, alcohol and watching computer screens. Migraines can be triggered by certain foods and drinks; such as aged cheese, alcohol, and food additives like nitrates, and monosodium glutamate (MSG). They may also be linked to heredity. 4 out of 5 people with the condition have other family members who have them too.
Migraines can take a longer time to subside but studies indicate that the combination of the ingredients in Extra Strength Painaid can really take the edge off:
• Acetaminophen 250 mg.
• Aspirin 250 mg. (NSAID*)
• Caffeine 65 mg.
The first OTC product to gain FDA approval for the treatment of migraine was the combination of acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine. The combination of these agents has been shown to be more effective than any one of the components alone in comparable doses.¹
Patients using a combination product for their migraines, it is important to know about the caffeine content. There is as much caffeine in this product as there is in a cup of coffee; one should limit their caffeine intake while taking this product.
