Hi Cub.

Sorry about your HA. Where are they centered? In your neck? At the base of your skull? Between your eyes?

I agree with you that you probably have become immune to the Excedrin. If its all about stress you might talk to your doctor about taking L-Tryptophan (or 5-HTP, a stronger tryptophan-type thing, but easier to get,) Kava, or St. Johns Wort (can conflict with other meds, such as BC pills.)

Maybe you could also get into a meditation routine, just for 10 minutes or so, about a half hour before your headaches usually start.

Just a thought. Hope it helps.
