  • It doesnt really help with pmsing but it does wonders for cramps. I loved it when I was taking it (can't take it now since I am allergic to it)

  • Midol helps with pain (and sometimes bloating), not emotions.

  • Midol has helped me with cramps, bloating and fatigue.

  • It is just a pain killer with some addatives.
    It helped me though whenever I took it.

  • Nothing but Ibuprofen ever helped with cramps. I had awful cramps from age 14 until age 55. And they didn't even put Ibuprofen on the market until I was about 40. Arghhhh. My Doctor gave me a prsecription drug when I was about 21. It was too strong and made me feel loopy. I hated it. I never renewed the prescription. Midol NEVER helped.
