Advil® Works Differently To Provide Trusted Pain Relief
While there are many pain relievers available for sale without a prescription, it is important to know the differences between them. The pain reliever in Advil is ibuprofen, which is part of a class of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which also includes aspirin and naproxen sodium. Clinical studies have shown that when taken as directed, Advil is a safe and effective pain reliever.
Advil does not contain acetaminophen, an active ingredient that is included in many other pain relievers. Acetaminophen may cause severe liver damage when taken in excess of recommended doses.
For 25 years, patients and doctors have trusted Advil to deliver fast and long-lasting relief from many kinds of acute pain – headache, muscle aches, backache and minor arthritis pain. No other over-the-counter pain reliever has been proven stronger or to last longer on pain than Advil.
Any medication may cause side effects. You should not take more than the recommended dose because it will increase the risk of side effects. To maximize the benefit and reduce risk, it is important to use over-the-counter medicines responsibly according to the label and speak with a doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.
Please refer to the label for complete warnings and important information.
