How does Naprogesic relieve the pain?
Naprogesic has been made especially for period pain. It reduces the amount of prostaglandins produced, this reduces contractions and therefore reduces pain.
What are the symptoms of period pain?
The type of symptoms and how severe they are vary from woman to woman and period to period. You can feel heavy and bloated, experience cramps, headaches and lower back pain. You can also feel miserable - you might be snappy or tearful, frustrated or depressed. Even if you suffer just one of these symptoms it can make you uncomfortable and disrupt your day.
How long does period pain last?
This also varies. Your period could last for just one day a month or up to four days a month. You'll most probably find your pain is strongest the day before you have your period.
What causes period pain?
If you experience period pain within a couple of years of getting your periods, then the cause of period pain is most probably tiny molecules called prostaglandins. When you have your period these are released to help the muscles of your uterus contract so it can expel its lining. The strength of contractions depends on the amount of prostraglandins your body produces. If your body produces a lot of these molecules, or if you are particularly sensitive to them, they will cause you pain.
When should I take Naprogesic?
Naprogesic should be taken with food. It works best when taken the day before your period is due. If your periods are irregular, take Naprogesic at the first sign of period pain or bleeding (whichever comes first). To relieve period pain for up to 8 hours, take 2 Naprogesic tablets with food followed by one tablet every 6-8 hours if required. Your total daily dosage should not exceed 5 tablets.
Can severe period pain indicated a problem?
If your period pain didn't start until you were in your mid 20s or older, it could be a sign that something is wrong, so see your doctor. You should also see your doctor if your period is more painful than usual, persistently severe, if you feel pelvic pain with bowel movements, or if you bleed in-between periods. These could be symptoms of any number of conditions, some of which require urgent attention. So don't just put up with unusual pain or bleeding hoping it will go away. If you have no relief after taking this product for 3 days, see your doctor.
Can everyone take Naprogesic?
Most women can take Naprogesic without a problem. However, as with all medications, there may be a small number of people who are sensitive to the active ingredient. If you experience any side effects which concern you, stop taking Naprogesic and see your doctor for advice. Naturally, if you have a history of high blood pressure, liver or kidney disease, gastro-intestinal ulcers, asthma, or are currently taking another medication you should see your doctor for their advice before taking Naprogesic. If you are hypersensitive to aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications, or are currently taking an anti-inflammatory medication, do not take Naprogesic. If you are currently taking a medication that contains warfarin, do not take Naprogesic unless it is with the recommendation and close supervision of your doctor. Severe complications may arise if these two medications are taken together.
