Did you Know?
Taking over the counter painkillers like Ibuprofen, midol, Advil, or Alleve can cause a multitude of side effects? They can cause things like stomach ulcers, headaches, drowsiness, gas, bloating, heartburn, stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and more.
These types of medications, known as NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), are commonly used to treat pain and inflammation. But did you know they can also increase the risk of a heart attack, stroke and high blood pressure, whether you already have heart disease or not?
From the first day of use, all NSAIDs increase the risk of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding, myocardial infarction, and stroke. They’re especially risky when used for long periods of time.
NSAIDs can cause severe or life-threatening gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding and ulcers in some people.
Not to mention the adverse effects and complications that can occur if you take NSAIDs with other medications!
That’s why we’ve made it our mission to create a world where people can live their best lives on their period.
