Who is not a good candidate for treatment with Midol PMS?

Midol PMS is not intended for use as a painkiller in men or in children under 12 years old. In addition, Midol PMS should be used with caution, and only under a doctor's advice, in females who:
  • drink more than three alcoholic beverages per day, as this medication may increase risk of liver damage.
  • currently take other medications containing acetaminophen, to avoid overdose
  • are under 12 years of age
  • have liver or kidney diseases, breathing problems, glaucoma, or difficulty with urination
Because it is not known if Midol PMS passes into breast milk, always ask your doctor before breastfeeding during Midol PMS treatment.
