      Prone to headaches and upset stomach during stressful times or periods of not eating well, I was happy to see Alka-Seltzer Extra Strength in my local drugstore. I’d used regular strength Alka-Seltzer for years, but found that its effects wore off more quickly than I’d

      desired.

      So, where does Alka-Seltzer get the “plus” from? Extra Strength Alka-Seltzer adds more aspirin to each tablet.

      Now, instead of only 325mg per tablet (that’s 650mg per two tablet packet), they stuff 500mg per tablet-or 1000mg per dosage.

      There’s also more citric ...


      • acid and sodium bicarbonate in each packet, both of which are antacids.

        The good: Sometimes more is better! Alka-Seltzer in the extra strength variety managed to keep my upset stomach and headache at bay for a full four hours, at which time my symptoms

        had mostly disappeared.

        The bad: These tablets take forever to dissolve in water! It took a full seven minutes to dissolve two tablets in a glass of water.

        That’s far too long when you’re not feeling well and ten times longer than it takes regular Alka-Seltzer.
