I’d suggest Aleve.  I’ve been told that is the only one that won’t cause rebound headaches. You have to be careful taking too much of any of those because they can cause ulcers.

I don’t know if this will help anyone else on the planet, but in case it does, I’ll share. Whenever I start to get any kind of a major headache (sinus, tension, even pre-migraines) I go sit in my car and blast the A/C (or sometimes stick my face in the freezer or in front of a fan) and just breathe in the cold air. It usually works in making me feel better and taking the nausea away. It doesn’t always work for the migraines, of course, but those are a special kind of headache.

Maybe it’s just psychological though?

Aleve is always my first choice, but if I don’t have any lying around, I’ll take Advil. But since you’re saying that Excedrin is your first choice, then acetaminophen makes the most sense for you to take. I think what works best is different for everyone.
