You can still get Norgesic which is orphenedrine citrate, the same main ingredient as in Norgesic Forte. I took Norgesic Forte for my migraines and it worked wonderfully. When it was taken off the market, my dr switch me to regular Norgesic and had me take 2 excedrin along with it. This completes the ingredients that were in Norgesic Forte and give me the same result.

Thank you for the information regarding orphenedrine and excedrine. What dosage orphenedrine are you using?

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but apparently Orphenedrine is only available in dosages of 60 to 100mg; both of which can be taken every 8 hours according to the "general" dosing guidelines I found online.

However some articles I've come across make a point of mentioning that it's not clear whether the extended release version is more or less effective on a milligram to milligram basis than the immediate-release version.

So I'd also be curious to know which one of these worked best for you?

Thanks for any information!
