    I have debilitatingly painful, heavy periods that over the counter pain relievers do not relieve. It was so bad that I sometimes had to miss school/work because of the pain. I was first given birth contol, which did not work and my body did not react well to, so I was prescribed Meclofenamate about 6 years ago. Works like a charm- if I take it right away, I actually have pain-free periods. It even slows down flow and all that fun stuff. Amazing little pill.

    I was perscribed this for heavy and painful periods. The first time I took it, a few days later I started to have severe side effects including pain when swallowing, pain in my stomach and overall extreem discomfort. When I called my doctors office about these side effects (because it says to contact your doctor immedialty) they told me it was just heart burn. I stopped taking the pills as soon as I started to get the side effects but I still had them for a week (durring my whole honeymoon, it ruined it). I couldn't eat without severe pain and had problems sleeping because of the pain. I will never take this medication again. I'd rather have the cramps than that pain.

    I'm too scared to take this medication. I've read all there is to read about it and it still does not ease my anxiety about it. I still suffer painful and heavy periods, have been for about 8 years now. I desire relief but I can't get over my fear of this medication. I'm stuck between fear and a pill bottle. I really don't know what to do. I have discussed having a hysterectomy with my doctor. That seems to be the only end in sight here in my case.

    I use to almost hemmorage every month until put on this, when i started this I noticed a real difference. I had no side effects, only ALOT less bleeding, less cramps, and I had more of a life because I wasnt afraid to leave the house due to leakage accidents. I was normal again.
