I use for cramps (menstrual cramps usually) and headaches and it usually works very well and is the only pill I can swallow. It isn't a big pill at all.

My cousins take Midol and it helps them instantly, I on the other hand find it really hard to find a pill that could eliminate my cramps completely. Works differently for people, would not recommend if you have awful cramps. (I'm 18)

Midol is NOT Naproxen. It is Acetaminophen, while both are NSAIDS they work differently and have different interactions. This is inaccurate info, there is no Midol product with Naproxen I checked their website. Midol is amazing for far more things than just period cramps. I use it for everything, sore feet at work - Midol, headache - Midol, back ache- Midol. It has also helped take the edge off some pretty brutal cramps. It works wonders.

Midol is NOT NAPROXEN it is Tylenol with caffeine and an antihistamine. This works excellent tho. This article is an error. I hope they fix this.

I would not wish this medicine on my worst enemies. Makes me so sick to my stomach. It does help with pain but the nausea and stomach ache is NOT worth it.

This is the only medicine that help my cramps enough that I can actually leave the house. Sometimes if knocks them out completely, sometimes I still need to have my heating pad along with the midol. The earlier you start taking it when the cramps start, the better it works. Sometimes it makes me feel a bit loopy headed as well, but it is worth it.
