I just had another thought: tell Poo and Spike that you carry some Vicodin with you but you forget about it. That way, if you're out together and you need it, they will hopefully remember that you have it.

I placed an order with my local pharmacy for some groceries and otc medications and vitamins. They arrived after about 2 hours. They sent me Bayer Aspirin Brand of low dose daily use ASA, instead of the AC&C (ASA=acetylsalicylic acid=Canadian for aspirin, codeine, and caffeine). Ack! I had gone over that item several times.

I phoned and told them. They said the delivery wouldn't be very soon and might not be 'til tomorrow. I said our headaches were today. Okay, not soon, maybe two hours. Two hours is okay.

I still had 4 Kodimagnyl from a packet I bought in Denmark. Same idea, but no caffeine. I had to take two. That headache I have had in the background for several hours jumped to full fledged, in your face, foreground headache. They better get it right this time. They better not send me the ones with acetaminophen instead of ASA. I made that clear. Because, the ones with acetaminophen don't work on me.

TL, have you tried having a cup of coffee or tea to get the caffeine? Or keep one of those energy drinks on hand. Hope you feel better soon.

Thank you GG.

I had two double espresso allongés today. I don't think this is a caffeine withdrawal headache. I think it's illness related and got aggravated by the annoyance of not getting my pain relievers and the possibility that they wouldn't arrive until tomorrow.

They just arrived (while I was typing this reply) and they are the right ones. Yay!

GG, I started thinking about the caffeine. It helps a lot of people with migraines. Now, my headache wasn't so bad that I would call it a migraine. Then I remembered that I was having a visual migraine, so maybe it was a migraine headache. I drank another allongé and it did the trick. The Kodimagnyl had dulled the headache to mild and the caffeine wiped away the rest of it. Thanks for the suggestion.

Caffeine also increases the speed with which the pain medicine is absorbed and distributed. That's why it is in pain medications. So if you don't have the caffeine, it takes longer to get relief.
