    Hard to say. I know too much sugar usually gives me a headache.

    Perhaps the preservatives? Depends on how used to sugar/preservatives etc it is. If its the first time it's given you a migraine then I'd think probably not.

    Did it have artificial sweetener in it? Some people get headaches from that.

    I get migraines from compound chocolate (cooking chocolate).

    Hope you feel better soon

    Have you still got the bottle, does any it have any of those ingredients from that list ? Some flavours are trade secrets though so they don't put the codes on the products.
