Does anyone take midol or pamprin for period symptoms? If so which one do you like best? I haven't taken either of these since I was a teenager. But I've been suffering from extreme bloating and severe cramps every month for the last 2yrs. I don't know why I make myself suffer but was thinking maybe it's time to try one of these again.

I used to take midol until we found a birth control that eased the cramping. I would take 2 on the really bad days otherwise I would still feel like throwing up

Pamprin always helped me when I took it. Look into raspberry leaf capsules too to help regulate periods and period symptoms.

I took midol as often as I could during the day and had started benadryl at night because midol just wasnt enough and I heard it would help. The benadryl made a huge difference with my cramps and bloating. I would take benadryl at night a few days before my period and when it started I didn't need the midol as much.

I have taken both of them before and they both worked for me, I first tried midol and since it helped I always stuck with it, then one day I came across pamperine when I was out of midol and it was on sale so I decided to give it a try, it also helped me, so I'd say they worked the same for me

Thanks ladies! I bought some midol complete so I'll give it a try this time around. I don't know why I'm so stubborn and feel like I always have to suffer because the cramps are horrendous and bloating too. I used to take birth control and it helped a lot but after having my 2nd kid it seems my body doesnt like it anymore and I have crazy symptoms with the bc.

New Mom B asks I'm up to my wits ends with my 4yo. We moved in to a new house 3 weeks ago and I had his baby brother a week ago. He goes to the same school so at least that wasn't a change. But at home he will not go to sleep until 11-12midnight. I don't know what to do. We do the same routine as we did at the old house and still nothing. He acts well around his brother he just won't go to sleep. Any ideas? Thank you
