Can taking a lot of cramp pills shorten your period? I had really bad pain so I took 4 and now my period only lasted a day and a half.

In brief: Actually yes
There is some evidence that Naproxen and other nsaids medications can reduce the flow of the menstrual period.
I don't recall the doses used in the studies i read.
