What Does Midol Do to Guys?

Bayer markets Midol as a treatment for menstruation pain and symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) under the brand name Midol. According to the manufacturer’s website, it comprises non-specific medications such as analgesics (pain relievers), antihistamines (for allergy treatment), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), and caffeine. All of these medications are safe for male use.

According to WebMD, acetaminophen (Tylenol), the active ingredient in the original Midol (now called Midol Complete), is a safe and efficient pain reliever and fever reducer for both men and women. However, it is not indicated for individuals with severe alcohol consumption or liver disorders. Midol Complete also contains caffeine, which is found in coffee, tea, and many soft drinks, as well as pyrilamine maleate, an antihistamine that Bayer claims lowers PMS-related bloating, anxiety, and irritability. Nevertheless, according to Web MD, its primary application is in the treatment of cold and allergy symptoms.

The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs) naproxen and ibuprofen are present in both Midol Extended Relief and Midol Liquid Gels. According to MedicineNet, NSAIDS are effective in treating a variety of illnesses that afflict men, such as headaches, backaches, arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis, as well as menstrual cramps.
