Bayer markets Midol as a treatment for menstruation discomfort and symptoms linked with premenstrual syndrome, or PMS. The medicines it includes, according to the manufacturer’s website, are non-specific therapies like analgesics (pain relievers), antihistamines (allergy therapy), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), and caffeine. Men can safely utilise all of these medications.
According to WebMD, acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the principal ingredient in original Midol (now named Midol Complete), which is a safe and efficient pain reliever and fever reducer for both men and women. It is not recommended for persons who consume large amounts of alcohol or who have liver disorders.
Midol Complete also contains caffeine, which can be found in coffee, tea, and a variety of soft drinks, as well as the antihistamine pyrilamine maleate, which Bayer claims can help with PMS symptoms like bloating, anxiety, and irritability. According to Web MD, its primary usage is to alleviate symptoms related with colds and allergies.
The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) naproxen and ibuprofen are found in Midol Extended Relief and Midol Liquid Gels. NSAIDS are used to treat a variety of illnesses that afflict men, including headaches, backaches, arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis, as well as female menstruation cramps, according to MedicineNet.
