25 Jan 2013 Advil is a small size caplet that is easy to take. It does not have any taste which makes it easier to take.

08 Jan 2012 This is an expensive medication, I prefer it over the other oain medications. I do get thirsty when taking it and sometimes it upsets my stomach. It also helps reduce swelling.
