    I re-discovered Goody headache powder in 2007 when I had a terrible headache and the only thing my aunt had was goody. I have been a fan ever since. I suffer from severe migraines. Goody cool orange, works faster without the drowinsess than my prescription. I have recommended it to several people and they are hooked as well.
