Feminax Ultra

Feminax Ultra provides long lasting relief from period pain and menstrual cramps in women aged between 15 and 50 years. It contains the active ingredient naproxen, a Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug (NSAID) to target the cause of period pain - the prostaglandins.

Feminax Ultra was the first maximum strength naproxen pain reliever available in the UK without prescription and provides relief for up to 8 hours, so you can get those nights of uninterrupted sleep that previously seemed out of reach.

Feminax Ultra are gastro-resistant tablets so are less likely to irritate your stomach.
Swallow the tablets whole with a drink of water. Do not chew or crush them. Take the tablets with or after food.

  • First day: When the pain starts, take two tablets. Then after 6 to 8 hours, take one more tablet that day, if you need it.
  • Second day: Take one tablet every 6 to 8 hours if needed.
  • Third day: Take one tablet every 6 to 8 hours if needed.
Only take the tablets for as long as you need them for the period pain. You may not need to take the tablets all the time for all 3 days. Do not take more than 3 tablets each day and do not take for longer than three days in any one month (menstrual cycle). If you still have pain after 3 days of treatment, talk to your doctor.
  • Active Ingredient: Naproxen 250mg.
