I get extremely painful PMS...
I get extremely painful PMS and menstrual cramps. I start taking aleive before the start of my cycle. My concern is that I am taking too much (sometimes around 2200mg's in a 24hour period). I know the instructions state not to take more than three but the pain is usually to much to bear if I don't take 8-10 220mg pills (i.e. I had to skip school because of the pain). I know I have PCOS and I am managing my weight. Is this too much medication (to the point of mild nausea) or is there perhaps something I am missing? Thank you!

Aleve should not be taken more than 1000-1250 mg per day.

You are exceeding it.

You need to take alternate Aleve and Tylenol every 4 hours for your pain.

If this does not relieve it; you would need prescription pain reliever.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
