My aunt had first introduced the effective Advil drug in our family. In fact, it has become my instant relief from headache attacks, minor dysmenorrhea, back and other muscle pain, and fever too. When I'm febrile, I just take two 200 mg tablets of Advil every four hours until my fever subsides. I often use it as a replacement for Paracetamol as well.
In my opinion, this medicine also works for pain associated with arthritis and toothache. In fact, my mother takes one tab of this drug when she has muscle or joint pain brought by arthritis. According to her, after some minutes of taking it, the pain had reduced.
Nevertheless, I remember the experience I had when my damaged tooth needs to undergo extraction. I'm in a deep pain that time and I'm just so lucky that we had Advil in our medicine cabinet. I took about three tabs and my pain had gone in a bit.
I should say that the effectiveness of every medicine for every person might differ from one another. Age and health condition of an individual for instance, may hinder to attain the drug's desired effect to the body. Perhaps it's just our luck to finally met Advil that compliments to our health needs.
