    Midol Complete worked on my bloating, my fatigue and my backache, BUT IT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR MY CRAMPS. Should have stuck with IBUPROFEN.

    This medication is nonsense. It worked mildly for about 1 hour and now has completely worn off, leaving me with a racing heart and period pain. I have used it 3 times, the only reason I continue to use it is because it is still lying around when I run out of Advil or neurophen or anything else that works better. I am throwing away the bottle tonight.

    Comment:
    This medication did not completely make my cramps subside, I had to take more than the recommended amount and I still had pain. it also made me extremely drowsy and did not reduce bloating. I also don't like that it has caffeine in it so overall I will not be taking midol again probably take ibuprofen instead. Not recommended!
