Midol is simply an analgesic. You take it whenever you are in pain. This can be during your period or at any other time. Although it's indicated for menstrual problems, it can be taken for other times you are in pain. It contains paracetamol, caffeine and some varieties contain ibuprofen or Naproxen. It isn't just for period pain. It's useful for all cramp and achy pains.Health Question & Answer

yes, it is safe

so is any pain killer - ibuprofen, acetomenophen (Advil, Tylenol)

a heating pad/water bottle may help too

going for a walk and even light exercise can help

also - don't laugh - having an orgasm through masturbation often helps too by relaxing yoru uterusHealth Question & Answer

Yes, Midol is safe any time, but it is formulated to be effective for menstruation-related pain and symptoms. (Not just PMS).
If your only complaint is pain.....any pain reliever will work, but ibuprofen (such as Motrin or Advil) is known to reduce pain as well as decrease the amount of bleeding.Health Question & Answer

<---works in Ob/GynHealth Question & Answer

Midol didn't work for me, I had to take extra strength Ibuprofen or Tylenol.

The trick is, when you know you are going to start, try taking pain reliever a day or so before. That way you don't give your body a chance to start hurting. also, I try to take my pain medication every 2-3 hours so that I don't start hurting and have to wait until the meds kick in.Health Question & Answer
