The directions indicated that I should take it at the first sign of cramps, so I followed that to see if it would help. True to the claims they make, it is non-drowsy and it dissolves quickly. I dissolved a couple in my mouth at the beginning of my period when my cramps first started.
It actually helps a lot! I noticed that I didn't have to move around a lot to get comfortable and I didn't feel like I needed a heating pad. The cramp relief was subtle, so I didn't even notice how much it helped until I realized I wasn't doing anything else that I normally would to feel better. I just... did.
I HIGHLY recommend this natural medicinal aide for menstrual cramps.
