Waste of money,
This review is from: Goody's Headache Powders, Extra Strength, 50-Count Boxes (Pack of 4) (Health and Beauty)
I'm glad that the other reviewer's here found relief with this product, but I found it less effective than plain aspirin! I purchased these powders primarily for my husband who suffers from migraines and daily headaches - they were zero help. I have occasional headaches so I tried them - same thing, absolutely no relief whatsoever. I tried just plain aspirin and it worked better- but not as good as Excedrin. Guess trying this product was worth a try, but it was a waste of time and money.

Had you considered using the product internally? The ingredients are the same as other OTC pain killers, it's impossible to take them and get no result while a smaller dose of aspirin was effective.

Migraines are most commonly caused through the stomach. Most migrain sufferers do not realize that they need to medicate the stomach as well as the head. For starters avoid certain foods that are triggers for migrain. Not the same for everybody but red wine and dark chocolate are coomon triggers. Secondly, you are throwing asprin which is already a stomach irritant into your stomach. Take asprin or any powder with milk not water. The milk acts as a buffer to the stomach walls until the asprin passes through. I had migraines for years; the deabilitating type that lasted about 6 hours. Migrain medicines, even those prescribed did very little. Finally I hit on something that worked for me. First of all I checked to see what foods I had eaten up to 12 hours prior to an attack. I then eliminated those foods that appeared to be at fault. Red Wine was a definite as was dark chocolate (milk chocolate didn't seem to be a problem) and foods with a lot of MSG. You may be different. Next , when a migraine started I took a double dose of BC or Stanback and a full dose of Dramamine. The dramamine is for your stomach but it may put you to sleep. But during a migraine attack you're better off asleep. I don't recommemd double doses but I did it anyway, anything to get the pain to stop. After you pass 50 years of age, if you watch what you eat; the migraines will usually stop. Lots of luck
