For Period Pain: “I had the most excruciating period pain and couldn’t even get out of bed. I tried everything and nothing helped until my cousin gave me motrin. With motrin I don’t feel any pain and don’t suffer from symptons nausea, depression, mood swings and now I can function normally. I can not believe I find something to stop to pain, I’m truly fascinated and recommend motrin to anyone”
For Headache: “I take Motrin for my headaches and it works within 30 minutes. I have no side affects. I have tried Aleve, Advil, Tylenol and some prescription drugs for headaches. None have helped me like Motrin does.”
For Headache: “I've been suffering from headaches/migraines due to stress, menstrual cramps and dry sinuses for 5 years now and I have to say Motrin is very amazing with results. I would usually take 2 to 3 pills with food and about an hour or 2 it takes the pain away. No side effects!”
For Osteoarthritis: “The Best.”
For Rheumatoid Arthritis: “I had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. I had an allergic reaction to naproxen so I started taking Motrin and It was very effective. I have been in remission for about 18 years now.”

For Back Pain: “Better than any other NSAID but when you have serious pain you will need something a little stronger.”
