Take A Holiday From Headaches With Excedrin® Migraine – Giveaway

excedrinWe all look forward to the sights, smells, foods, beverages and merriment associated with the holiday season. However, sometimes the things we love the most about the holidays could trigger headaches or migraines. That’s why the makers of Excedrin® Migraine 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:

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

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

With all of the stress that can come with the holidays, the makers of Excedrin® are hoping to help alleviate some! Visit Facebook.com/Excedrin between November 1, 2013 and January 1, 2014 to enter the “Take a Holiday from Headaches” sweepstakes, where you’ll be eligible for a chance to win daily prizes including gift cards to popular retailers and one lucky grand prize of $25,000 to help with shopping, travel and other holiday expenses – all of which can give anyone a headache.
