How does Advil® work?

When you suffer from a headache, back pain, joint pain, or other injuries, your body increases production of chemicals called “prostaglandins,” which trigger pain signals.

Advil® temporarily blocks your body’s production of prostaglandins, thereby reducing the pain signals and relieving your pain at the source.

When used as directed, Advil® is tough on pain but gentle on your body. Advil® has been relieving pain for over 30 years, and is the #1 selling pain reliever in the world. In fact, the medicine in Advil is the #1 doctor recommended for pain relief among OTC pain relievers.
