In brief: Can cause sedation.

In addition to acetaminophen, Naproxen or ibuprofen, midol contains pyrilamine which is an anti-histamine.
It can cause drowsiness and dizziness which is compounded by ativan (lorazepam). I would advise you to use caution when using both, see how your body reacts, and separate the doses out as much as possible if needed.
