What Is Midol?

Midol is referred to as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Midol is a brand of over-the-counter analgesics used to treat menstrual cramps and other symptoms associated with PMS and menstruation. It prevents the production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation in your body. Ask your doctor about non-drug therapies and using other drugs to treat your pain if you have a chronic condition like arthritis. (Source: www.medicoverhospitals.in)

What Do Midol Pills Do?

Period cramps, bloating, water retention, fatigue, muscle ache, backache, and headache are relieved. To combat fatigue and bloating, it contains acetaminophen (a pain reliever), caffeine (a diuretic), and pyrilamine maleate (an antihistamine). (Source: www.medicoverhospitals.in)

Check all prescription and nonprescription medicine labels carefully since many medications contain pain relievers/fever reducers (including aspirin, NSAIDs such as celecoxib, ketorolac, or naproxen). These drugs are similar to ibuprofen and may increase your risk of side effects if taken together. However, if your doctor has directed you to take low-dose aspirin for heart attack or stroke prevention (usually 81-162 milligrams a day), you should continue taking the aspirin unless your doctor instructs you otherwise. Daily use of ibuprofen may decrease aspirin's ability to prevent heart attack/stroke. Talk to your doctor about using a different medication (such as acetaminophen) to treat pain/fever. If you must take ibuprofen, talk to your doctor about taking immediate-release aspirin (not enteric-coated/EC) while taking ibuprofen. Take ibuprofen at least 8 hours before or at least 2 hours after your aspirin dose. Do not increase your daily dose of aspirin or change the way you take aspirin/other medications without your doctor's approval. (Source: www.webmd.com)
