... cramps? I am suffering from period cramps in my lower back. If I take this medication will it help ease the pain?
Acetaminophen will help with the pain and the menstrual cramps.
Acetaminophen/butalbital/caffeine is used in the treatment of headache and belongs to the drug class analgesic combinations.
I believe this is more commonly prescribed for tension headaches. A heating pad might also help you as well as limiting your sodium or salt intake... avoiding things like soda because of the higher sodium content and herbal teas can also be soothing. I want to add, too, that moderate exercise like walking can also help ease back aches. From my own experience, the more exercise I did during that time of month, the better I felt.
As with anything containing Acetaminophen... be very careful how much you take in any given 24 hour period. Also be mindful of consuming other products or beverages containing caffeine. You CAN have too much of a good thing.
Motrin, Nuprin, Advil and Pamprin are also good for those menstrual cramps...
Be well and take good care of YOU! Happy Holiday to you, too.
