This really sucks

I know - but Excedrin kills my headaches like nothing else I've used - Tylenol, Alieve, etc. And normally caffeine doesn't keep me up, at least not that small a dose.

Well, there was the one time I took *four* Alieve in a short time frame. I couldn't nailed my hand to my desk and not cared - z_gryphon tells that story better than me, mostly because I was flying high as a kite on painkiller at the time so the incident is fuzzy.

It wasn't deliberate - I was at work, in 1995 or so, and had a BAD headache and nothing for it. A co-worker offered me a bottle of Alieve that had been rattling around her purse, or desk, or something and the instructions were wiped out. Every other pain killer I knew was 'take two' - so I did. A while later my head was still killing me - so I took too more, knowing from past experience with doctors that doing that once with Excedrin, Tylenol, etc, is OK.

A while later my headache was gone... as was I.
