06 Jun 2015 After having taken Advil PM for the last month due to difficulty sleeping I have had randomly, really bad nightmares on several occasions. Waking up with an accelerated heartbeat and remembering most of the very vivid dreams. I do not drink and only take a prescription medicine during the day, as prescribed...this is not a good reaction and should be noted by the drug company as people can related heart problems.

02 Feb 2015 I have taken Advil PM previously with no ill side affects. Last night however, about 40 minutes after taking it I started becoming extremely confused, weird patterns were forming in my vision & I had a moment where I felt like I had stopped breathing - it was basically severe hallucinating. My lips felt swollen. It was extremely frightening & I'm not sure if ur was just a bad batch or something else was at play (no other medications taken recently). Has anyone else experienced this with Advil PM or similar products?
