Because of terrible menstrual cramps my doc told me to take 800mg before the pain even began. So for 12 years I have taken thousands of mg everytime I got my period. Now, I have developed a sensitivity to it. Even when taken with food this medication causes severe stomach pain. I do not drink alcohol and I do not smoke cigarettes. For DAYS (about 3) after I take even one dose anything I swallow hurts my stomach a couple seconds after I swallow... even a sip of WATER! It feels like I am being stabbed right between my 2 sets of ribs where my stomach is. If you have similar pains try naproxin sodium but be SURE that you put food in your stomach first.
