Doctor can evaluate: For mild to moderate menstrual cramps, women can try tylenol, (acetaminophen) midol, pamprin, advil, motrin, or Aleve (all are otc). Ponstel is by prescription from the doctor. The doctor also can evaluate why there is heavy flow. To treat heavy flow, some women use birth control pills (ocp's) or other therapies.
