Some girls are lucky where they only have one day of light periods. Other girls have to deal with heavy periods that require using Super Plus Tampons and Sanitary Pads. What is the best way to deal with a heavy period and are there things you can take to reduce the flow?

My cycle only last for two days without any pain at all. Hence the first day's flow is fairly heavy, while on the second day, its toning down to panty liners all the way. Definitely use maternity/night pads. Love Libra - those thick purple pads, as well as the thinner ones with wings. Can easily go through about 2-3 a day without any nasty odours. That is, by keeping clean and fresh, albeit comfortable.
Using cloth pads or a moon cup instead of tampons and disposable pads can help to reduce flow because the disposable products have chemicals in them to make them absorbent which also increase flow.
Aspirin can ease the flow but the pay-off is your period will last for a longer time and they should only be used in moderation. Some doctors will prescribe the oral contraceptive in the management of heavy menstruation but there are dozens of possible nasty side effects.

Heavy, painful and prolonged periods can often be rectified with diet and lifestyle changes as long as there is no underlying pathology like uterine fibroids.

You should consult a health professional:
if your periods are heavier and more prolonged than usual two or three months in a row
you are passing large clots
if you soak through a pad or tampon in less than a hour for two to three hours in a row
if you need to change a pad or tampon during the night

Shouldn't be wearing tampons at night EVER, due TSS.
Use Nightime or Maternity pads; much safer for you.

Daytime, change tampon every two hours, whether needed to, or not.
For night, maternity or Nightime pads, when needed to do so.
who knows any more!! past that.
