Why do I get drowsy when I take advil since it's a painkiller and not a sleeping pill????
Advil is a type of NSAID, Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory. Sometimes nsaid's can cause drowsiness. It also has this effect on me.
First make sure it is not Advil PM which has an antihistamine. If not then you are just having a rare side effect.
Med all ways do that to my and so does advile
Don't know. It happens to my husband too. And he can't take any other kind of pill-they make him sick
