Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

You can take again as excedrine is taken every 6 to 8 hours.

However, if you do not see any improvement in 2-3 hours after second dose, you should go to the ER for further evaluation.

High blood pressure, intracranial bleeding, stroke are some of the possibilities of persistent headache.
Best wishes,
