 Take a Holiday From Headaches

We all look forward to the sights, smells, foods, beverages and merriment associated with the holiday season. However, with all the shopping, cooking, and decorating during the holidays, we may get things we never ask for—headaches.

That’s why the makers of Excedrin® Extra Strength invite you to “Take a Holiday from Headaches” by following these simple steps, provided by Dr. Keri Peterson, M.D. to help avoid your triggers:

o Stick to your regular routine.  Eating, sleeping and exercising as you do the rest of the year can help reduce the chances of getting a headache/migraine. *

o Manage your time and plan ahead. Coordinate plans and responsibilities in advance with relatives and friends, compose set menus when hosting a party and try to purchase gifts early so you’re not rushing at the last minute*

o Stay in ventilated spaces. As you browse through the mall, watch out for those scented candles or perfume if you are sensitive to smells**

o Eat and drink in moderation. Eat, drink, and be merry, but try not to consume sweets or alcoholic beverages in excess, as they could trigger headaches **

Holiday time can also mean lots of traveling, so be sure to carry Excedrin® Extra Strength with you when you’re on the go for fast relief should a headache or migraine strike.

Acute pain can range from mild to severe, and may last for weeks or months. If treated properly, acute body pain will subside within six months. If left untreated, acute pain may lead to chronic pain.
