Do prisoners have access to things like Tylenol or Advil in prison for headaches?

Or even cramps? Or do they just have to deal with it?

    Different prisons function different. Private and State prisons, for example, tend to be incredibly frugal. They often require inmates to purchase their own non-mandatory medications. Not only does this mean that a prisoner with a headache will need to pay out of pocket for some Tylenol, but female prisoners are also required to buy their own tampons.

    I recently read about a private prison where several female inmates could not afford to buy tampons, and at the same time were being heavily fined for dirtying their clothes.

    All medication is dispensed by the infirmary. NO drugs are permitted outside of DIRECT medical supervision.

    They usually have to ask for it at the nurses' station and the nurse/doctor will decide if it is needed, or not. They cannot save it up, because some try to commit suicide that way. Jodi Arias tried it.

    Prisons have an "infirmary". Which is like a hospital. Which is where they'd be sent if they were in pain, and pain killers would be administered there.

      You can Buy generic acetaminophen, aspirin in stores. Which is what NP would say if it wasn't chronic, like a migraine.
