Advil detailed information:
Advil is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which relieves pain and swelling (inflammation). It is used for relief of symptoms of arthritis, primary dysmenorrhea, fever, and as an analgesic, especially where there is an inflammatory component. Ibuprofen is known to have an antiplatelet (blood-thinning) effect, though it is relatively mild and short-lived when compared to that of aspirin or other more well-known antiplatelet drugs. It is also used to treat headaches, muscle aches, backaches, dental pain, menstrual cramps, arthritis, or athletic injuries and to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pains due to the common cold or flu.
This medicine contains the active ingredient ibuprofen. It works by blocking the action of a substance in the body called cyclo-oxygenase. Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the production of various chemicals in the body, some of which are known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced in response to injury or certain diseases and would otherwise go on to cause pain, swelling and inflammation. Ibuprofen is therefore used to relieve pain and inflammation. All the medicines in this group (NSAIDs) reduce inflammation caused by the body's own immune system, and are effective pain killers.
Pain can strike at any time, even when you don't have time for it. So when people are counting on you, don't take chances, take Advil. Advil provides fast, effective pain relief and it's gentle on your stomach. Nothing you can buy has been proven stronger than Advil.
