  • Call a pharmacy and ask; there are multiple formulations of Midol, so you'll need to tell the pharmacist which one.

  • Yeah, I was afraid it'd come down to that. I'm searching online but not having a lot of luck.

  • I think it is fine, most have naproxen and some water relief in them, I wouldn't take them at the same time.
    I mean when you take antibiotics you can take Tylenol, Advil, so I can't imagine why Midol would be any different.

  • I think I would ask your doctor or pharmacist. They should have given you and little pamphlet with all the instructions and what not to take with it.

  • Can you just take an Advil instead?
