In brief: OTC or script meds

Otc meds like Motrin and advil (ibuprofen) help.
There are prescription meds also that you can take. You should see your gyn to make sure you don't have any problems like fibroids or endometriosis and he or she can get you on meds. Birth control pills also can help if you also need birth control as bcps and a newer med called Lysteda slow down the flow which will usually slow down cramps.
