Xanax side effect - menstrual cramp PAIN???

I just recently went on xanax and aside from this have had no noticable bad side effects - when I got my period last week I awoke at 3:00 in the morning to the most agonizing and intense cramping I have ever experienced (I only occasionaly get cramps during my period, and even then they are pretty mild). I had to take 4 Midol plus asprin to finally stop the pain after almost 3 hours!! I looked online and it did say one of the side effects could be "painfull menstruation" - has anyone experienced this?

Re: Xanax side effect - menstrual cramp PAIN???

Hi daria - I have never experienced any bad side effects from Xanax. I did also have a painful cramping episode all night a couple months ago, but I also had a migraine and diarrhea/nausea, so maybe I was just sick. I have been taking Xanax for two years, so I'm pretty sure that episode wasn't from the Xanax. Maybe it was just from your anxiety?? I get a lot of stomach problems because of my anxiety sometimes.

nope, I had been feeling fine...it definately wasnt any type of anxiety attack. They were full on menstural cramps, only times 100!

thats weird. I just meant I get stomach problems from anxiety but not necesasrily when i am having an attack, just the constant stress you are under eventually wears your body out. Seems like since I have had bad anxiety I do have more intense PMS symptoms occasionally where I never used ot when my anxiety was manageable.
