  • I find it very funny that my best friend, who can't stand using Advil,while I swear by it, but she can eat Motrin all day like they were Tic-Tacs while I don't think it does hardly anything for me
  • But because she was so adamant about using Motrin and how good it was for her, I decided to pick up some one day to try it out instead of my usual Advil because, quite frankly, the Motrin cost less as it was on sale
  • I'm not saying one is necessarily better than the other one as they are both made from Ibuprofen, but for some reason, I think my body works better with Advil while my best friend's works better with the Motrin

      I find it very funny that my best friend, who can’t stand using Advil,while I swear by it, but she can eat Motrin all day like they were Tic-Tacs while I don’t think it does hardly anything for me. Growing up, I never used Motrin because I always used Advil or Tylenol, so when I asked my best friend what she used for pain killers, she stated that the ONLY over the counter medicine that did anything for her was Motrin. And that was only if she downed like eight pills at one sitting! But then again, her liver and kidneys are probably made of stone because she hasn’t had too many adverse effects from using that much Motrin as of yet.

      But because she was so


      adamant about using Motrin and how good it was for her, I decided to pick up some one day to try it out instead of my usual Advil because, quite frankly, the Motrin cost less as it was on sale. At the time, I was having some back pain so I opened the bottle and looked down at the round little orange tablets in my hand before tossing two down with some water. I honestly thought they’d work almost instantaneously, especially after hearing my best friend go on and on about its curative powers. But honestly, I didn’t feel any relief for quite awhile. Yes, it did alleviate my back pain after awhile, but I really didn’t think it was all that great not when compared to ...

      • Advil. For some reason, Advil seemed to work much faster and the effects was longer than Motrin. Also, I only had to take about four Advil for the entire day to deal with the pain, but I had to take almost eight for the entire day with the Motrin. It may just all be in my head, but to me, even if the Motrin was cheaper, since I have to take more to get the desired effect, I might as well shell out the extra money for Advil and get faster and better relief.

        I’m not saying one is necessarily better than the other one as they are both made from Ibuprofen, but for some reason, I think my body works better with Advil while my best

        friend’s works better with the Motrin. Since that time, I have never purchased Motrin again, preferring my Advil for my aches and pains. But my best friend still gets her tub of Motrin for any of her pains and never touches Advil. Again, I suspect that it might have to do with just psychology, but having tested out Motrin in the past and finding it only mediocre compared to my usual Advil, I have to say that I think Advil is much more effective. But to each their own I guess. For me, Advil is the one that makes my life much more bearable when it comes to those reliving my symptoms and I would only take Motrin if there was nothing else to relieve my pains, so sorry girl!
