You have a lot of over-the-counter options when it comes to pain relief, which can be overwhelming. Your best option may depend on your specific pain needs and the advice of your doctor.
However, it’s important to know the difference between Advil® and other pain relievers. The pain ingredient in Advil® is ibuprofen, which is part of a class of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (also known as NSAIDs). When you take Advil® you get relief right at the site of pain. Wherever it is, Advil® stops pain right where it starts.
The makers of Advil® do not produce store brand ibuprofen pain medicine.
Advil® Liqui-Gels® have a liquid form of ibuprofen inside, while fast-acting Advil® Film-Coated Tablets are a solid form of ibuprofen sodium (a salt form of ibuprofen).
Both get absorbed by the body quickly (the first because they’re liquid and the second because they’re a salt form), so both products are designed for fast absorption and fast relief.
