Excedrin fans, rejoice!
Since January, migraine and headache sufferers have been waiting and hoping for Excedrin to return after it was part of a massive recall in January.
Drugmaker Novartis told the Wall Street Journal that production has resumed on the recalled Excedrin products and the company recently wrote on its Facebook page that it expects to begin shipping Excedrin Migraine the week of Oct. 15, with the product expected to appear on store shelves as early as the end of the month.
These Excedrin products, with expiration dates of Dec. 20, 2014 or earlier, were part of the recall:
Excedrin Extra Strength Caplets, Excedrin Extra Strength Express Gel Caplets, Excedrin Extra Strength Gel Caplets, Excedrin Extra Strength Tablets, Excedrin Back & Body Caplets, Excedrin Sinus Headache Caplets, Excedrin Migraine Caplets, Excedrin Migraine Gel Tablets, Excedrin Migraine Tablets, Excedrin Menstrual Complete Express Gel Caplets, Excedrin PM Caplets, Excedrin PM Express Gel Caplets, Excedrin PM Tablets, Excedrin Tension Headache Caplets, Excedrin Tension Headache Express Gel Caplets, Excedrin Tension Headache Gel Tablets
American News Report says that the long recall may have cost Novartis customers as people found alternatives to Excedrin products.
