Terms & Conditions of Program
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
Advil is a common medication used to treat pain (analgesic) and to lower fever (antipyretic). It is sold over-the-counter in 200 mg strength tablets. Advil is also available in the prescription strength 400 mg and 800 mg tablets.
Advil reduces inflammation by slowing down the formation of prostaglandins, which are signal molecules used by the immune system to treat pain and inflammation.
Do not take Advil for longer than directed by your healthcare provider because it has potentially serious long-term side effects. Advil is generally considered safe with short-term use, so only use the lowest dose for the shortest amount of time.
The usual OTC Advil dose is 200 mg tablets, 1-2 tablets by mouth every four to six hours as needed for pain.
The active ingredient in Advil is ibuprofen.
Use caution if you are taking any of the following medications. Tell your doctor and pharmacist so they can determine if the combination is safe for you.
Use caution if you have a history of kidney or liver issues while taking Advil.
Prolonged use of Advil can increase the risk of stomach ulcers and gastrointestinal side effects.
Long-term use of Advil can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Talk to your healthcare team about all the precautions that you should be aware of.
