Comment:
I have debilitatingly painful, heavy periods that over the counter pain relievers do not relieve. It was so bad that I sometimes had to miss school/work because of the pain. I was first given birth contol, which did not work and my body did not react well to, so I was prescribed Meclofenamate about 6 years ago.
