Note to self:
Taking Excedrine: Migrane (65mg of caffiene) and drinking a 20-ounce cup of Mountain Dew (around 80 mg of caffiene) puts me so far on a high I probably won't be able to get anything done for the rest of the day.

(I know I kicked caffiene, but I had a headache and the Mountain Dew was the only reliever available at the time. When that didn't work - probably because it was a tension headache and that rarely works with tension headaches - I took the Excedrine. Stupid, stupid me.)

I feel really funny right now.

Wait.

I think that listing of ingredients is not per dose, but per caplet - in that case, I'm over 200mg of caffiene. That's... really bad. Not overdose level, but... twitch.

Edit: ...and crap, I also just realized I haven't eaten anything today. My lunch has been sitting next to me untouched for the last two hours. ...no wonder I'm screwed up.

Lists of ingredients are usually per dose... The only way it would be per caplet would be if the dosage is something like "1-2 caplets"

I remembered that when I took a look at the ingredients originally, I was flabbergasted at the amount of drugs in them. It is per caplet. (Yikes.)

I think the lack of lunch is probably more to blame than the caffiene - lack of carbs and esp. protien will give you a headache on par with a mild tension headache. Although I will admit that I don't know how that much caffiene would affect someone who's not used to it - lord knows that I don't count, I can drink a 16 ounce Monster without a twitch.

Well, the headache was knocked out by the Migraine meds, I just forgot to eat my lunch and so I was... strange. Kind of bubbly and dizzy and shaky. I used to be used to caffeine, and then I quit it to avoid Acid Reflux.
