The active ingredient in fast acting Advil® Film-Coated Tablets is ibuprofen. It is present in the tablets as sodium ibuprofen, a different form of ibuprofen that is much more soluble in water than standard ibuprofen.
Levels of sodium are not high enough to require label warnings. Each fast acting Advil® Film-Coated 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.
NSAIDs, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, are a group of chemical compounds that often are chemically unrelated but share therapeutic actions such as analgesic (pain-relieving) and antipyretic (used reduce fever) effects.
No. Unlike certain combination products, Advil® Menstrual Pain is caffeine free and antihistamine free, so it won’t keep you up at night or make you sleepy during the day. Advil® Menstrual Pain contains ibuprofen sodium, a powerful pain reliever which targets the cause of your menstrual pain for up to six hours of relief.
“Solubilized ibuprofen," like that in Advil® Liqui-Gels®, is ibuprofen that has been completely dissolved in a liquid center inside a soft capsule shell.
The active ingredient is ibuprofen, an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) that is a pain reliever and fever reducer.
The active ingredient is solubilized ibuprofen equal to 200 mg ibuprofen (NSAID)* (present as the free acid and potassium salt.) Since it’s solubilized, the pain reliever is in liquid form so it’s absorbed more quickly by your body.
