    If you are worried my advice is to go back and see the doctor who prescribed these for you. OThere are many medications that treat several conditions and are very effective.

    Your doctor must have thought these would help you or he/she wouldn't have given them to you.

    I have just seen your post. I too was prescribed mefenamic acid quite a few years ago for heavy periods and not pain. I found them to be very helpful. I did not however have a month long period. Might be worth a try

    as they definitely seem to have an effect on periods. Good luck.
