Every store that sells Excedrin, has their own "brand" of generic Excedrin-----just check the ingredients and see for yourself. At Target, they even have an "Excedrin tension" med that has only acetaminophen and caffeine, and not the aspirin, for those of us who have touchy stomachs etc. The brand at Target is "UP & UP". I've used these generics for years, and they work exactly like the Excedrin brand. Also, the Excedrin Migraine pills have the same ingredients as Excedrin Extra Strength. I hope you get relief, but after taking meds with caffeine in, for years, I have been having "rebound" headaches, so have had to wean off it twice, but as "life happens", I end up using it again, so now am having problems again, so be careful!
Excedrin is still in the market only that it changed the brand name from Excedrin pm to Excedrin back and body. These changes came by when the company was purchased by Novartis from Bristol-Myers Squibb. More information is available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Excedrin.
Novartis is working on getting its products back into stores and it hopes to have shelves restocked in the next few weeks. Although it might take months before every retailer has full stocks again.

I have tried all of the off brands and none of them are as effective as excedrin. I hate spending the money on walgreens and walmart off brands so i will try the back and body and the pamprin. But for all excedrin lovers lets just be honest....EXCEDRIN ROCKS!!!!!!! JULIE FROM DANVILLE, ILLINOIS
