For adults and children 12 years old and over, take one 200mg tablet, caplet, or Liqui-Gel every 4 to 6 hours while symptoms persist. If your pain or fever doesn’t respond to one pill, two tablets, caplets or Liqui-Gels® may be used. DO NOT take more than 6 tablets, caplets or Liqui-Gels® (1200mg in total) in a 24-hour period, unless directed by a doctor and do not use for more than 10 days. For children under 12, contact your pediatrician.
If you have any condition that requires a prescription medication, talk with your doctor or pharmacist about using Advil®, or any other pain reliever.
Fast acting Advil® Film-Coated and Advil® Menstrual Pain contain ibuprofen sodium – a salt form of ibuprofen that dissolves differently from standard ibuprofen. However each tablet contains 22 mg of sodium. Even if the maximum daily dose is taken (6 tablets), the total amount of sodium ingested is only 132 mg. Per the FDA, the recommended daily value for sodium is less than 2,400 mg per day, although some people may need less due to health concerns. Speak with your doctor about your sodium intake.

No. Talk to your doctor about the best pain reliever to treat your specific pain symptoms.
The active ingredient in Advil® Migraine is solubilized ibuprofen equal to 200mg ibuprofen. Since it’s solubilized, the pain reliever is in liquid form, and the liquid form is absorbed quickly by your body. As you know, treating a migraine fast is just as important as treating it effectively.
Advil® Migraine is clinically proven to relieve migraine pain and related symptoms, like nausea and sensitivity to light and sound. It’s also the only FDA-approved OTC migraine medicine in a liquid-filled capsule — so you can get the relief you need fast. Control your migraines before they control you.
The time of relief depends on which form of Advil® you decide to use to treat your pain as well as your body chemistry. For example, fast-acting Advil® Film-Coated Tablets, Advil® Liqui-Gels® and Advil® Liqui-Gels® minis are designed to do just that: act fast. Both products are designed for fast absorption and fast relief. Regardless of which Advil® you determine is right for you, it is important to wait 4-6 hours between doses.
While Advil® can be taken with nutritional supplements, it’s recommended that you talk about any risks with your doctor or pharmacist before taking Advil® with nutritional supplements.
The coating of Advil® tablets contain a small amount of sugar, which gives them a sweet taste.
