    Hello dawn. I can see why the doctor has given you Diclofenac for period pains but I've never heard it given for migraines. Do you get migraines when you're having a period?

      That would hav been very helpful however there was not a leaflet in my box as the pharmacy had put two packs inside a white box most unhelpful

      When can I start these for period pain? Day before? When cramps etc start?

      I'm only trialling these for now to see how I get on as they are having trouble sourcing the mefenamic acid I was using.
