Film-Coating Equals #FastAdvil

New Advil is faster than ever

I’ve always liked Advil because of the sweet coating. It makes it a whole lot easier to swallow, pun intended. A few years back, I had a bad experience with my body reacting to some Advil so I haven’t used it frequently since then, but i decided to give it another go when I was invited to participate in this campaign by Crowdtap.

As part of this campaign, I was sent several blister packs with 2 tablets each and four $3 off coupons. Head over here if you’re interested in your own coupon! The blister packs are actually pursing for carrying in your purse or wallet, by the way!

Advil’s new film-coated tablets are the same size as I’m used to, and they’re a 200MG dosage. They’re slightly lighter and more orange in color, however, so you can tell them apart from other Advil tablets.

Crowdtap and Advil deliver pain relief (and samples) fast!

Another change is the new Ion Core, which is designed to stop pain even faster than before. It’s because the type of ibuprofen is more soluble with water, so make sure to drink a big glass of it when you’re taking these pills.

I’m sure we’re all familiar with the waiting period between pain and pain relief when taking medication. It’s not fun!┬áTo be honest, I don’t pay a lot of attention to how long it takes pain relief to kick in, but the sooner the better, right? I can say that the new Advil seemed to be very fast! The slightly sweet taste and film coating make them easy to swallow

The active ingredient in Advil is ibuprofen, which works well for swelling and fevers as well as pain relief. With a fresh piercing that I keep accidentally sleeping on, it’s useful to have this around!

There are a couple things to keep in mind, however.

  • Water is necessary to dissolve the coating. I typically take pills without water so I’ll have to remember this.
  • A few reviewers reported heartburn perhaps due to the sodium. I haven’t experienced this either time I’ve taken the tablets.

Of course, you want to remember not to take pills too quickly or too many in a given 24- hour period.

Check out film-coated Advil at Amazon for less than $2. You’ll also find it in your local big box stores and pharmacies!

    Man, I miss Advil specifically for the film coating! As you pointed out, that coating makes the tablets super-easy to swallow – especially nice if you’re grabbing headache relief on the go (such as at a red light) when you may not necessarily have a drink nearby.
    My mom uses Advil for headaches, so I emailed her a link to your post so she can get the coupon. :)
