Advil inhibits cyclooxygenases, the enzymes that help produce prostaglandins and thromboxane. Prostaglandins are involved in mediating pain and fever. Thromboxane is involved in promoting blood clots and cyclooxygenases also help maintain a protective lining of the stomach lining.
The therapeutic effects of Advil for pain relief and fever reduction are due to the reduced effect of prostaglandins. The gastrointestinal side effects of Advil are also related to its inhibition of cyclooxygenases and thromboxane.
The effects usually last four to eight hours.
