Cramps - in so so so much pain! HELP.

I really fear having my period every month because the cramps I have are just awful and unbearable.

I was prescribed Naproxen 500mg and that does help, but you are only supposed to take one and then wait 12 hours to take another.

I took my first pill around 2:15 p.m. The cramps started again at 7:30. How ridiculous that it only worked for only about 5 hours until the pain came back... and now I'm supposed to wait until 2:00 a.m. to take another pill??! I know that I CANNOT take Ibuprofen with Naproxen as they are both in the same drug family. I know that I CAN take Tylenol with Naproxen and have thought about taking some Tylenol now, but the problem with that is, how long is the Tylenol going to last, especially considering it's only 8:30 p.m.!

Anyone here take Naproxen? Is there anything else you take with Naproxen or after the Naproxen has worn off to help with the cramps? This is just terrible! I am using a heating pad, but that only helps a teeny bit. My cramps are so bad I usually need something really really strong, ya know?
