Midol works by blocking the production of hormone-like substances
called prostaglandins. Studies have shown that a clear majority of
women using anti-prostaglandin medications report relief.
Midol has a number of unique products containing prostaglandin inhibitors designed for the relief of menstrual symptoms. One such product is Midol Menstrual Complete. Unlike Tylenol or Advil, Midol Menstrual Complete contains a unique combination of ingredients that help relieve many of the discomforts associated with your period.
Midol Cramps & Body Aches contains ibuprofen, a potent prostaglandin inhibitor that is effective at blocking the source of menstrual pain.
Naproxen Sodium, yet another prostaglandin inhibitor, is the main ingredient in Midol Extended Relief. It provides relief of your menstrual pain for up to 12 hours.
Today, use of medicines like Midol according to label directions can make painful periods a thing of the past!
