GIRLS: What is the best medicine for cramps?

Report as

I've had the best results with ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and it works better if you take it before the cramps get bad or even before they start.

I agree. Also use a heating pad and if you don't have a heating pad, get a water bottle and fill it with hot water, wrap it in a towel and lay it on the area that is hurting.

I take Alieve for the cramps. Take it after you eat. Then drink tea and you barely feel the cramps.

Advil works great but takes a while, so it's best to take before the cramps even start. Also eat bananas. The potassium helps your uterus not cramp. And..... SEX. ORGASM. Yes my dear it's true. Might be temporary relief but it's great relief.
