There are many migraine treatments on the market, and this is our review of one of them: GoodSense Migraine Formula.
A migraine is one of the most common conditions in adults around the world. It’s estimated that about 12% of the US population gets them. Many people claim to have a migraine when, in fact, they probably only have a really bad headache. What differentiates a migraine from a bad headache is what goes along with the pain: people often become sensitive to light and sound during a migraine attack; they may also become nauseated and vomit. The migraine pain itself is usually manifest as a throbbing or pulsing pain, often on only one side of the head.
So, a migraine is not just another headache.

Acetaminophen, which is also sometimes called paracetamol, is widely used to treat mild to moderate pain. Aspirin, which is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), is also a pain reliever. It relieves pain largely by reducing inflammation. Caffeine also helps to reduce inflammation and as such, contributed towards pain relief.
This combination of Acetaminophen, Aspirin, and Caffeine is not unusual is all kinds of pain relief medications, including those that are not said to be specifically formulated for the relief of mild to a moderate migraine.
Adults should take no more than 2 caplets daily with a glass of water.
We would question the efficacy of this dosage. Similar products, with similar quantities of the active ingredients, usually state that the dosage may be repeated four-hourly, with no more than 8 tablets/capsules/caplets being consumed within a 24-hour period. There is nothing to indicate a reason for the lower recommended dosage for GoodSense Migraine Formula.
A pack of 24 tablets costs between $4 and $6.50
Goodsense does not appear to indicate any kind of guarantee of its products on its website. This could be because it does not sell them directly to the public – or because it is not convinced of the efficacy of its migraine relief product to actually relieve migraines.

GoodSense Migraine Formula Review – Conclusion
The GoodSense brand of over-the-counter (OTC) medications and supplements is manufactured by or for the Perrigo Company. The company is the world’s largest manufacturer of OTC pharmaceutical products for the store-brand market. This appears to indicate that the quality of the product is of high standard, although we could not find any specific certifications to this effect.
Because migraine is not just another headache, we would expect the formulation of a pain relief medication that has been specifically formulated to relieve migraine pain to differ in some way from that of standard over-the-counter medications.
However, there is virtually nothing in GoodSense Migraine Formula to really differentiate it from dozens of other strong OTC medications that one would take to relieve general pain and fever.
