Menstral cramps: I have found that the best medication to control terrible menstral cramps are the class of drugs known as the antiprostaglanding durgs. The best of the class I have found is anaprox (naproxen) ds which requires an rs, but you can get almost the same relief with aleve 250mg 3 pills twice/day which is over the counter.
