Can I take Advil® for a cold or the flu?

Yes, Advil® offers a variety of treatment options depending on your cold and flu symptoms.

Advil® Tablets, Gel Caplets, Liqui-Gels® and Liqui-Gels® minis contain an active ingredient, called ibuprofen, which temporarily reduces fever, as well as relieves minor aches and pains due to the common cold.

If you have additional symptoms, you can also consider using Advil® Cold & Sinus and Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain products for additional relief. These products contain ibuprofen plus a nasal decongestant to provide relief for symptoms including: headache, fever, minor body aches and pains, sinus pressure, and nasal congestion.

For further questions concerning your use of Advil® products, please speak with a healthcare provider. If your symptoms continue to persist or get worse, please contact a physician immediately.
