General Information

Bayer Extra Strength Asprin is an over-the-counter medication approved for the treatment of mild to moderate migraine pain. This treatment is available in caplet formulation.

Those who suffer from migraine attacks experience periodically recurring, intense pulsating pain that is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting and a sensitivity to light or noise.

Side Effects

Adverse events associated with the use of Asprin may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Drowsiness
  • Headache

Mechanism of Action

Asprin contains the active ingredient acetylsalicylic acid, which acts in a pain relieving, anti-inflammatory, anti-pyretic and anti-thrombotic manner. Acetylsalicylic acid also works to alleviate the increased aggreagation of blood platelets and the release of serotonin that are characteristic of migraine attacks.
