Greetings! It is day two of IP for me. So far, so good. However, last night I had a horrible headache and took two Excedrin. Is that allowed? I read where I could mix sea salt and water for headaches, but no where did it say I could/could not take Excedrin.
Thanks all! I will be here quite often for advice and inspiration!
Yep it's allowed. Personally I always first tried putting some salt in my hand, licking it off and following with a full glass of water, and if that didn't work I would take Advil (only necessary if it was a full blown sinus headache, not an IP one). I found that for me the salt works faster and better than Advil, and your giving your body what it needs. Make sure you're getting all your salt in.
I take excedrin when I have a headache. My nurse didn't have a problem with that. FYI, I have a nurse practitioner instead of a coach. She is wonderful, but I told her just today that I had to take excedrin for my headache, and she didn't say anything against it. Good Luck, and definitely be aware of the salt. I too stopped drinking caffeine when I started. Hang in there....it will pass soon. I drank a lot of water, over a gallon, and it seemed to help.
