When I was skiing and needed some - I took an aspirin, a Tylenol and drank caffiene.

gluten-free since June, 2011
Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.
Nightshades now seem to bother me too.
BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

@kareng-brilliant. I may have to stop by Target, then. I was looking on the boxes to see if any of them said it, but I had my shades on (they were NOT coming off) and was a bit cross-eyed, so I couldn't read well.
@bartfull-I almost picked some up. I didn't see it on the gluten-free list, though, and I've previously been able to link severe headaches with gluten, so I didn't want to take a chance. It seemed to make sense when I was standing there that powdered medicine would be more likely to have gluten in it.
@Adalaide-good plan. I don't typically keep acetaminophen in the house because it doesn't usually work for me, but I may just start keeping it around.

You might want to check out this article about Excedrine. They're pretty sneaky.
I had noticed that it was the same thing with different names. I just get the generic Target brand (with the arrow on it).
