Does Ibuprofen Make You Sleepy?
No. Advil, when taken at the recommended dose, does not contain any ingredients that are likely to make you sleepy.
The active ingredient in Advil is ibuprofen, an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) that is a pain reliever and fever reducer. Ibuprofen is the active ingredient in a range of over-the-counter (OTC) medicines. Ibuprofen is classed as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
Drowsiness is not an expected effect when doses of product are taken as directed on the label.
