What is the difference between the different types of Advil®?

All forms of Advil® are effective at fighting tough pain– when used as directed.

Tablets are the original round form of Advil®, which has been trusted by millions for over 30 years. Oblong-shaped Advil® are called caplets — which are also available with a gel coating (gel caps) to make them easier to swallow.

Determining which Advil® is right for you depends on your pain relief needs and personal preference.

Advil® Liqui-Gels® are a liquid form of ibuprofen inside a gelatin capsule. This allows them to be absorbed into the body quickly and provide liquid fast pain relief.

Advil® Liqui-Gels® minis provide the same amount of ibuprofen (200mg ibuprofen), as Advil® Liqui-Gels®, in a 33% smaller capsule. So you get fast, powerful pain relief for your tough pains in an easier to swallow size.

Fast acting Advil® Film-Coated Tablets contain a Rapid Release Formula with a core of ibuprofen sodium – a salt form of ibuprofen that is much more soluble in water than standard ibuprofen. They are designed for fast absorption and fast relief.

There are also different forms of Advil® to treat your specific pain needs. Advil® Migraine is designed to work quickly and is clinically proven to combat migraine pain, nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.
