Is Advil the same as Ibuprofen?
Yes. Advil is an ibuprofen-based pain reliever that has products to relieve pain and inflammation for adults and children. Advil belongs to a class of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDs like Advil are commonly used to treat non-inflammatory conditions such as headaches, migraine and period pain, and manage pain and inflammation (swelling and redness) associated with some common types of musculoskeletal disorders. Advil also reduces fever.
