Advil Liquid Gel is a solubilized ibuprofen that temporarily relieves minor aches and pains such as headaches, toothaches, backaches, muscular aches, menstrual cramps, common cold, and minor pain of arthritis. 

Advil Liqui Gel can also temporarily reduce fever. 

As a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Advil Liqui Gel works by inhibiting the body’s production of pain, fever, and inflammation-causing substances to provide relief. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before taking Advil Liqui Gel and every time you get a refill, carefully read its medication guide and patient information leaflet. If you have questions or clarifications, do not hesitate to consult your doctor or pharmacist. 

Advil Liqui Gel dosage varies per individual base on the medical condition and treatment response.  

This medication should be taken at the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration possible to minimize the risk of stomach bleeding and other adverse effects. 

Typically, Advil Liqui Gel is taken every 4-6 hours with one capsule while symptoms persist. If pain or fever does not alleviate, two capsules can be taken, but not more than six capsules within 24 hours unless instructed by a physician. 

To prevent stomach upset, Advil Liqui Gel can be taken with food or milk. Swallow the gel capsule whole and do not chew or cut it open. 

Take Advil Liqui Gel exactly as directed on the package label or as your doctor prescribes.  

For optimal results, Advil Liqui Gel should be taken at the first sign of pain when using it “as needed.” Delaying its usage until the pain worsens may decrease its effectiveness. 

If the fever persists or worsens beyond 3 days or the pain worsens or lasts more than 10 days, promptly seek medical advice.

Before taking Advil Liqui Gel, inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have any known allergies, especially to: 

  • Ibuprofen 
  • Aspirin 
  • Other NSAIDs such as celecoxib or naproxen 
  • Any medications 
  • Any ingredients present in Advil Liqui gel 

To ensure Advil Liqui Gel is safe for you, disclose to your physician your medical background, specifically regarding any history of: 

  • Asthma, including a history of worsening breathing after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs 
  • Blood disorders, such as anemia or bleeding/clotting problems 
  • Nasal polyps 
  • Heart disease, such as a previous heart attack 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Liver disease 
  • Stroke

The following products may interact with Advil Liqui Gel:

  • Cidofovir 
  • Corticosteroids such as prednisone 
  • Lithium 
  • Diuretics such as furosemide 

To reduce the risk of drug interactions, inform your healthcare provider about all your current medications, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and herbal products. 

Taking Advil Liqui Gel with other medications that may cause bleeding, such as antiplatelet drugs (clopidogrel) and blood thinners (dabigatran, enoxaparin, warfarin), may increase the risk of bleeding. 

Carefully check the labels of all your medications as many contain pain relievers/fever reducers, such as aspirin or NSAIDs like celecoxib, ketorolac, or naproxen, which are similar to Advil Liqui Gel and may increase the risk of side effects if taken together. 

If your doctor has prescribed low-dose aspirin for heart attack or stroke prevention (usually 81-162 milligrams a day), continue taking it unless instructed otherwise. 

Daily use of ibuprofen like Advil Liqui Gel may reduce aspirin’s ability to prevent heart attack/stroke. If you need to take ibuprofen, speak with your doctor about taking immediate-release aspirin (not enteric-coated/EC) while on Advil Liqui gel. 

Take Advil Liqui Gel at least 8 hours before or 2 hours after taking aspirin. Do not change your dose of aspirin or alter how you take aspirin/other medications without your doctor’s approval. 

Advil Liqui Gel increases sun sensitivity. Take precautions by limiting sun exposure, avoiding tanning booths and sunlamps, using sunscreen, and wearing protective clothing when outside. Notify your doctor immediately if you experience sunburn or skin blisters/redness. 

Advil Liqui Gel may impact ovulation in women, potentially resulting in infertility. However, fertility typically returns to normal once the medication is discontinued.  

Consult a healthcare professional before taking Advil Liqui-Gel during pregnancy. Taking this medication after 20 weeks of pregnancy should only be done under the direction of a doctor as it may cause complications during delivery or problems in the unborn child. 

Ibuprofen can be transferred into breast milk but is not expected to cause harm to a nursing baby. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding when taking this medication.
