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.
