I have been told to take 1 81g aspirin a day. If I take excedrin for a headache do I still take the aspirin?
Welcome to justanswer

What particular type of excedrin do you take?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

excedrin extra strenght

also the aspirin should be 81 mg.

Thanks for your reply.

Excedrin extra strength already contains 250mg of aspirin.Therefore if you take excedrin extra strength you should not take aspirin 81mg.

You may use excedrin tension headache as an alternative.It does not contain aspirin.You may use aspirin 81 mg along with excedrin tension headache.
