Taking advil on Yom Kippur

Question
Can one swallow advil (without water) on Yom Kippur for "severe" menstrual cramps that cause nausea/vomitting and would confine one to their home (being barely able to stand)?
Answer
Yes, you may take the pills. If you cannot swallow without water, take a small amount and put something in it to make the taste unpleasant.
