Goody's headache powders are the fastest working pain relievers I've ever found. Within three to five minutes as a matter of fact. All the other pill type pain relievers take an hour to become effective.
I believe that Goody's goes to work fast because it is in powder form and is therefore much faster to dissolve and get moving into your system. Pills, especially coated ones, take many times longer to dissolve.Does this get rid of a terrible headache better than anything? Yes. BUT, the side effects should be considered. If you take too much (for your body) you may experience very bad stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, restlessness, dry mouth. My husband takes it with no problem, but not so with me. My body just can't handle the powerful shot of aspirin, caffeine, and acetaminophen this delivers. So, because this stuff works so well, I found a way to use it that is not so hard on my body. First, I cannot take it at night or I will not sleep. Secondly, I only take 1/2 of the one dose packet. Sometimes that works just as well as the whole dose, other times it just takes the majority of the headache pain away. Still highly recommend for effectiveness, but adapt it to what your body can handle. but taste is horrabile
