Migraine headaches are one of the most common debilitating conditions that affects millions of people every day. The attacks usually recur, often monthly – but some people suffer migraines at such frequent intervals, their daily lives can be badly affected.
This is a review of Goodsense Migraine Formula Caplets, coated capsule-shaped tablets that have been formulated to relieve the pain associated with migraine headaches. It is, basically, a painkiller with three active ingredients that are commonly found in many over-the-counter pain relief medications. So what, if anything, makes Goodsense Migraine Formula Caplets different or more effective?
What’s in Goodsense Migraine Formula?
- Acetaminophen (paracetamol) 250 mg – a common ingredient in pain relief medications, proven to be effective in treating mild to moderate pain.
- Aspirin 250 mg – an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) which has long been used to relieve mild to moderate pain. It works largely by reducing inflammation.
- Caffeine 65 mg – a stimulant what also helps to reduce inflammation, and as such, contributes towards pain relief.
While many single-ingredient pain relief medications contain more (sometimes double) the quantity of Aspirin or Acetaminophen than that found in Goodsense Migraine Formula, the effect when combined with another pain relief ingredient often results in enhanced efficacy.
This particular combination of Acetaminophen, Aspirin, and Caffeine can be found in other pain relief medications, including those that are not said to be specifically formulated for the relief of a migraine.

The Conclusion of Our Goodsense Migraine Formula Review
In its write-up about its Migraine Formula Caplets, Goodsense claims that its formula delivers a “reliable weapon against your most severe headache pain”. We think this could be something of an overreach. The dosage of active ingredients – 250mg of aspirin and 250mg of acetaminophen, with about as much caffeine as you’d drink in a regular cup of coffee – not much more or different from other pain medications. With the recommended dosage limited to only 2 caplets daily, it’s possible that it may not be powerful enough to relieve really bad migraine headaches.
Nevertheless, there is sufficient caffeine in the product (about as much as in one cup of coffee) to have an adverse effect on those sensitive to coffee. If you are sensitive to caffeine, try to avoid taking these caplets in the evening. Goodsense Migraine Formula Caplets should also be avoided by anyone with a aspirin or NSAID allergy; and should be used with extreme caution in those with stomach ulcers or bleeding problems, including those taking blood thinning medications.
