Does anyone know if they are going to be making the excedrine migraine gel tabs? The tablets are back in our local stores but no gel tabs. They are the only thing that gets rid of my migraines.

Hi, Margie! Novartis, the makers of Excedrin, posted on the Excedrin Facebook page that Excedrin Extra Strength is being shipped to stores this month. So it should be showing up pretty soon.

Dear Novartis, I suffer from migraines and the only thing that helps me feel better is Excedrin Extra Strength Gel Tabs. The coated Excedrin Extra Strength coated tablets are worthless to my headaches. Sometimes I take 4 per day and it is the same as taking nothing.
