Review of Fast Acting Advil® Film-Coated Tablets.

Crowdtap and Advil® gave me another opportunity to sample and share "Fast Acting" Advil Film-Coated Tablets.

What better place to share these than at work?  I have a desk job and so sitting all day and being on the phone, the fluorescent lighting, the sound coming through the earpiece... it can be a recipe for headaches.  I decided to get a little crafty with this share and so I created little envelopes to put the blister packs in so my co workers could take them and have something nice to hold onto for use when needed.  I didn't realize that most would be needed right away!  I left them out on the desk with the coupons and explained my mission with Crowdtap and Advil.

Per their site, Advil advises: "Advil® Film-Coated Tablets goes to work in minutes.  Our latest innovation in relief stops pain before it gets worse.  This Advil® is formulated with a unique Advil Ion Core™  Technology and an ultra thin shell to absorb quickly – in fact nothing is proven to work faster* (*Among OTC pain relievers.)  Use fast acting Advil® Film-Coated for headaches, muscle aches, toothaches, menstrual cramps, back pain, and aches and pains associated with the common cold. Fast acting Advil® Film-Coated leverages the rapid absorption properties of ibuprofen sodium, now available for the first time in the US."

All my co-worker samplers were happy to get this.  I was even asked if it was gluten free as there are some people with gluten intolerance in the workplace.  Initially I didn't have an answer but I did find on their FAQ page this: "I am allergic to gluten. Is it all right for me to take fast acting Advil® Film-Coated? Gluten is not added to Advil® Film-Coated products during the manufacturing process. However, we cannot guarantee that minute amounts of gluten or gluten derivatives are not contained in raw materials obtained from various suppliers for our manufacturing process since the end product is not tested for gluten. You should check with your doctor if you have any concerns about taking this product."  I can say that said person still used the product with no adverse reaction!

Unfortunately I have issues with migraines.  I'm happy to say that I don't suffer from them nearly as much as I have in the past, but I didn't think I would get the chance to have a need, or use for this in the time period allotted to write about my sample and share.  Well, I was wrong.  I've had a LOT of stress over the last few weeks, or I should say months... well, really years, and there was a day when I felt one coming on.  I thought there was no way I was going to overcome this as I've had these types of headaches and migraines before where I would take a prescribed medication and it would take a good 2 hours for the medication to kick in.  Sure enough, just as they say, within minutes it took the edge off the headache and it didn't develop into a full blown migraine.  I was surprised and relieved!
