... Annie, Try caffeine. That is the element in Excedrine that is probably killing your headaches. Caffeine will raise your heart rate, but will not thin your blood or cause any other negative outcomes as far as I know. You can get it at drug stores in the for of NoDoz and other preparations. The fiornial w/o cod also has caffeine, and aspirin too. I believe each... (22 replies)
