This is the best product for muscle aches I have ever used.Better then any prescription.Three [...] pharmacists I have talked to said it is the best otc pain medication they have and recommend it to their patients.Back in December I noticed they started selling extra stength with diphenhydramine but w/o the phenyltoloxamine citrate so I stayed away from it. I was dismayed to find out now the regular strength is the same.The [...] pharmacist I talked to said he knew about the change and was dissapointed as the new formulation would not be as effective.Sure enough I tried it and it now works no better then Tylenol or Advil. The best thing I liked about the old formula was that if you took it an hour before bed it would knock you out and give you a great sleep and in the morning the pain would be gone,although you would be groggy for an hour or two.

Peocogesic has been a stand out product for years, the only one I am aware of that had Acetaminophen and Phenyltoloxamine Citrate. The product now has been changed to contain Diphenhydramine (Benedryl) instead of Phenyltoloxamine Citrate and is no longer effective. Additionally, there is the smallest of print on the box with no other change in the box to indicate this change. In fact, it still says, "Original Strength." For people like me who are allergic to Benedryl, this is disaster. Drugstore.com was very helpful in crediting me for the purchase and I will definitely continue to use them for my pharmaceutical needs.

        Comments about Percogesic Original Strength Pain Reliever Tablets, 90 ea:

        I have chronic migraines and have used Percogesic for 3 decades. I use it alternating with Excedrin Migraine. I would be lost without either product. I have taken Percogesic or so long that it no longer makes me sleepy, but I remember for the first few years, the drowsiness was an issue for me. So be careful of that.

          Comments about Percogesic Original Strength Pain Reliever Tablets, 90 ea:

          I have been using this medicine for almost as long as it has been on the market.
          It was first given to me for a Headache due to my Chronic ear problems and it went to work almost immediately, keeping me going for many hours without pain. I have been using this medicine ever since that day, as my "go to" medicine for Headache, aches and pains, and all around pain medicine, although I would not really recommend it as an anti-inflammatory. Whenever I travel, I take this medicine with me and do not know what I would do without it.
          I highly recommend this product to everyone and anyone because I know it works and it will help them. I also constantly pass this information on to my colleagues who are all Snow Sport Instructors with many aches and pains.

              I've used Percogesic exclusively for decades. It worked for headaches when nothing else did. I've suggested it to countless friends and family members. Now they changed the formulation, and there isn't even a notice anywhere on the package to check the ingredients list or to explain the change. We might as well buy one of the much less expensive products. Any of them will be just as effective and won't make you sleepy.

                    I was so disappointed in trying the new formula with diphenhydramine. It did not cut the pain at all. I suffer from fibromyalgia and have migraines all the time. The old formula was a god send. The Phenyltoloxamine Citratemade all the difference in how i could function. The diphenhydramine left me feeling groggy and nauseated. Please bring back the old formula. I will definitely not purchase again until they go back to the old formula.

                      For some reason, Percogesic does what other pain relievers don't. My family has used it for years. We've tried others, but always come back to Percogesic.

                        I get awful migraines, and Percogesic makes the headaches bearable. It doesn't completely wipe out the pain, but it numbs it enough so I can function. Only prescription narcotic pain relievers completely eliminate the pain and you can't live your life on those. Percogesic is a great product.
