Outline of Advil

Generic Ibuprofen 200 mg is present in Advil as the chief active constituent. Advil works by reducing the hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body. This drug is used to decrease the high body temperature and used in the treatment of swelling or pain caused by numerous conditions for example, back pain, toothache, arthritis, headache, minor injury or menstrual cramps. It acts through the inhibition of the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase (COX) enzyme activity.
