Migraine sufferers, relief is in sight.
Novartis, the manufacturer of Excedrin, announced Monday in an email to customers that Excedrin Migraine, which has been off the market since a January recall, is being shipped to stores this week.
Excedrine Migraine was one of several products recalled by Novartis in January after an internal investigation and registered complaints of "broken gelcaps, chipped tablets and inconsistent bottle packaging line clearance practices."
Locally, a CVS pharmacist said all Excedrin products are still off the shelves, but they do offer a generic version of the headache medicine. He said the store is due for an order shipment Wednesday, so it's possible the medication may come in then.
