Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the one that works fast for me. I does work fast for me. I get a lot of tension in the back of my neck and the lower part of my skull. i only take one, that is all i need. GREAT. Even when I wake up and my neck is hurting, I take one tension Excedrin and by the time I am at work I have forgot all about my neck hurting. I only take one because I am not a pill taker but when I need it I will take one. Only those who have experienced these kind of headaches will understand what I am talking about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! Why would anyone give this one star because it doesn't contain aspirin? That's the point: Excedrin created a product for those who can't safely take aspirin (some people cannot for medical reasons). This product works well! The addition of caffeine is a plus. It works, and is a good alternative to Tylenol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am extremely impressed! I have suffered from pounding headaches for many years at least once or twice a week. My head will throb and it will be hard for me to continue whatever I was doing, the pain is severe but not as bad as a migraine. I work as a preschool teacher, and I have a lot of stress in my life, and so I get headaches pretty often. I tried the migraine excedrin first, with little to no relief because I guess I was having tension headaches. I figured my headaches were from stress so I finally just decided to try this. I used it the first time I had one of my headaches, and i was extremely impressed. Within 45 minutes, my headache was almost completely gone and I could focus and finish out my day. With out this, my tension headaches would only get better if I laid down for a while and relaxed, which we can't do when were at work or out and about. For me, this stuff is a life saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excedrin Products Can Not Be Beat Nothing works for me but Excedrin. I use Excedrin Plus and now that I am going for back surgery I am not aloud to use anything that contains aspirin for 10 days before surgery. I will be using Excedrin Tension during that time. Because nothing else works. They are all sugar pills to me. I asked the Physicians Assistant to be sure and she was amazed that there was no aspirin in it only caffeine. So you are my life saver. I wouldn't think of trying anything else. Thank You an Excedrin user always.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than my perscription I have been getting migraines for years! I had a perscription for imitrex however due to other medications, I can no longer take imitrex. My migraines used to radiate down the back of my head to my neck and shoulders. I used to take just the migraine formula but the tension headache is 1000% better! Highly recommend to any and everyone!
