In brief: Naprosyn, (naproxen) heat
Other remedies for menstrual cramping can include naprosyn (naproxen) started a day or two before the bleeding begins.
Heating pads or a heat patch worn under your clothes may also help relieve cramps. Dramamine or benedryl may help with nausea, but might make you sleepy.

In brief: Cramping
When you get your monthly cycle and experience nausea and pain nsaids, like Ibuprofen taken 1 day before the cycle starts can help with this symptoms.
You have to be carefull to take always 2 pills of Ibuprofen with lots of water and food.Take pills every 6-8 hrs as needed. Prilosec may help if you need to take nsaids quite often.Birth controll pills also may work even better. You decide which one.
