I did notice that the inner label says it contains 20 mg potassium, but the US RDA of potassium is several thousand mg.
Does anybody have any idea why the difference in dosages? Also, why should one work better for "migraine" vs. general pain?
I have noticed that the migraine formulation does seem to help my headaches more, but I cannot figure out why.
