I've had bad cramps since the first day I started my period and I've tried almost everything. Hot water bottles, Midol, Tylenol, and other prescribed medicines from my physician and none of them seemed to have worked. A friend of mine finally recommended to me to try Ibuprofen and it works AMAZING. Within 10-15 minutes of taking the pill, I felt the pain start to alleviate. They come in increments of 200mg and 500mg, that I know of (500 being extra strength). Both dosages work for me, but I find that the 500mg is longer lasting, even up to 2 days on some periods. I really recommend this. The only thing I advise, is to probably take the pill right before you eat something or afterwards, that can really prevent you from feeling nauseous or tired. Good Luck & I hope I've helped !
