20 Jan 2012 Generally, I do not like to take Midol for my cramps unless I really need to. I try to stick with less stronger medications if I can.

03 Jan 2012 Sometimes Midols seems to help me but others its as if I didn't take it. Depends on how bad my cramps come that day!

27 Dec 2011 Very helpful for menstrual cramps, but does not alleviate the bloating. Works quickly, but wears off quicker than label says.
