How Long Can I take Ibuprofen For?

NSAIDs like ibuprofen are commonly used to manage mild to moderate pain (such as headaches, migraine, and period pain), inflammation (redness and swelling) and fever in both adults and children.

Over-the-counter pain relievers (Advil or otherwise) should not be used for longer than a few days unless directed by a doctor. You should stop use of Advil and consult a doctor if pain or fever worsens or lasts for more than a few days.
