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 (NSAID) that also includes aspirin and naproxen sodium. Clinical studies have shown that when taken as directed, Advil® is a safe and effective pain reliever.
Advil® is different than other OTC pain medications. Advil® does not contain acetaminophen, an active ingredient that is included in many other pain relievers. Multiple studies have shown that Advil® is stronger and lasts longer on tough pain than other OTC pain relievers.
Patients and doctors have trusted Advil® to deliver fast and long-lasting relief from many kinds of acute pain: headache, muscle aches, minor arthritis, and other joint pain, and backache.
Advil® stands for tough pain relief. This guide was created to assist you in finding the type of pain you have, taking proper action against the pain, and learning how to prevent future mistakes.
