Period Pain Treatments

Period pain is common and a normal part of your menstrual cycle. Most women get it at some point in their lives. It’s usually felt as painful muscle cramps in the tummy, which can spread to the back and thighs. The pain sometimes comes in intense spasms, while at other times it may be dull but more constant. It may also vary with each period. We at The Family Chemist have prescription anti-inflammatory treatments to help make the pain bearable.

Frequently asked questions

Naproxen or Mefenamic Acid are prescription anti-inflammatory tablets available to purchase from The Family Chemist. They are more effective than the traditional over the counter medication. We recommend that you use these medications alongside stomach protection tablets like a PPI which you can purchase from our website.
You can take paracetamol alongside anti-inflammatory medication to provide further pain relief. However, if you are continually experiencing heavy painful periods then you may want to explore contraceptives which can regulate the release of your hormones. Make sure you read the patient information leaflet carefully as there may be hints and tips on how to use your medication correctly or feel free to call us for some advice. However, there can be occasions where the treatments don’t work or suit you. In this case we recommend you contact your GP at your earliest opportunity for further advice.


If you need any help or advice, feel free to contact us at enquiries@thefamilychemist.co.uk or your GP.
