I love this product. It takes away my period pain right away. Now I cannot find the product anywhere in Canada. I need to know where to buy this product. So I can have pamprin every month. Midol sucks does not work at all.

Comment:
My adult daughter has Rett Syndrome and cannot talk. After we gave her the multi symptom pamprin, she started staring blankly and drooling and became very pale. Then in the night she feel head first out of her bed, which she never has done and turned blue. This drug effected her in a dangerous way. It it was not good to give to her before she went to sleep as well.
