Period pain stopping you from living life to the fullest? Don't just put up with the discomfort and inconvenience of painful menstruation, also known as dysmenorrhoea. Ultravana is designed to provide long-lasting period pain relief.

Available without a prescription in pharmacies and online, our period pain relief tablets are designed to help you find relief from menstrual discomfort.

What is Ultravana®?

Suitable for women aged 15-50, Ultravana® Period Pain Relief 250mg tablets contain the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) naproxen. This medicine provides long-lasting pain relief from dysmenorrhoea (more commonly known as period pain), helping you to get on with your day or night.

As it is gastro-resistant, Ultravana isn't absorbed in the stomach, instead it is absorbed when it reaches the small intestine.

What are the possible side effects?

Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

Naproxen, the active ingredient in Ultravana, is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (or NSAID for short). The side effects of NSAIDs can be minimised by using the lowest effective dose for the shortest time needed to control your symptoms.

Possible side effects may include:

  • Allergic reactions and skin rashes
  • Stomach problems such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, flatulence, constipation, abdominal pain, or heartburn
  • Dizziness, light-headedness, or convulsions
  • Changes to your hearing, ringing in your ears (tinnitus) or vertigo
  • Eye pain or changes to your eyesight
  • Heart or circulation problems, such as swelling of hands, feet or legs (oedema) and palpitations
  • Thirst, fever, and fatigue

Please refer to the patient information leaflet for full details of possible side effects.

If you experience any side effects when taking Ultravana, you should seek medical advice from a healthcare professional. Side effects can also be reported using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.
