I believe is best that you ask your chemist.

My personal opinion is yes you can take it, but I think there must be a better alternative for you, we are talking about cramps, and this medication is used for muscle spams due to injury, back pain, headache, but no where mentions it can help with menstrual cramps.-

Some input
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, usually abbreviated to NSAIDs or NAIDs

I am not a doctor nor pretend to be one at all, in this case a gynecologist... but I would recommend

Naproxen: Treatment of painful menstrual periods. (brand names include Aleve, Naprosyn, EC-Naprosyn, Anaprox, Anaprox DS, and Naprelan).-

I've been prescribed cyclobenzaprine for fybromyalgia. Cyclobenzaprine has been a godsend for my menstrual cramps. Still hurt, but near so bad, and I am not eating painkillers like candy (prescription strength ibuprofen or acetametaphen barely put a dent in that pain). Talk to your doctor if standard pain killers aren't helping.
