    Feminax (the new one is the strongest)

    Contains Naproxen which is stronger than Co-codamol (which is in the normal feminax)

    Naproxen is usually only available on prescription so it must be good

    Btw its the blue pack rather than the pink/purple one and is called Feminax ultra

    I use Ibuprofen, but you can mix and take two Ibuprofen and two Cocodamol (contains codeine, which is a stronger painkiller), alternately, every two hours, up to your maximum dosage.
    Which works nicely =)

    Paracetamol doesn't work for me, neurofen (Ibuprofen) does sometimes but I need to take a hell of a lot, we're talking 2 x 500mg tablets every few hours.

    I think I need to find something else.

    Isn't 200g normal for OTC? I only ever get my 400g ones from the docs...
    But yeah, mixing and matching painkillers is the way to go

    Since when has Nurofen had 500mg tabs?

    Or is it one of the annoying ones where they vary strenghs like 212mg?

    I used to get bad cramps.
    Getting rid of them for now eat bananas, it actually works. And take that feminax stuff.
    If they're this bad every month i suggest the pill. It has totally calmed mine down after 3 months. Which is great!

    Ibuprofen and co-codamol are alright, but while experimenting with herbal highs recently I discovered that kola nut powder kills period pain dead. Effective, and it can get you high.
