I was in church one Sunday and really needed a pain reliever, but of course I forgot to take something before I left home. My friend offered my 2 Advil tablets and shortly afterwards, I totally forgot about the pain and realized it was gone.
My husband went and purchased some of these to keep in our medicine cabinet and I sometimes take these instead of Acetaminophen (or Tylenol).
During this time of year, I suffer from headaches brought on by allergies and some days it's hard to even open my eyes. I don't think I have ever had a migraine but then again, I've been told I have a high pain tolerance, so maybe these headaches are more severe than normal?
I take 2 Advil and my headache will be gone within the hour. Today, I woke up with pain going between my left ear canal and throat. I know it was from snoring through the night from my allergies blocking my breathing. This pain was pretty bad and was more of a throbbing sharp pain, instead of an ache. I was on the verge of an earache, which I could do without. Now that I started to write this review, I have realized the pain is no longer there! I am quite happy because I was ready to go lay back down. It has honestly only been about 30 minutes since I took the Advil! No more pain.
Extra Strength Excedrin was always my pain reliever of choice, but sometimes I prefer to not take it, due to the additional caffeine in the Excedrin.
I am thankful that Advil was in my medicine cabinet and so glad it got rid of that pain. I will be using this more for body aches and pains for sure. However, I do prefer to NOT take anything because I don't want my body to become dependant on it or have these pain relievers no longer work. So always take the lower dose.
