    Advil does help at times, At least can take the edge off pain for a little while. I have not tried the PM. But Advil is the only type of this med that helps me. I do not take it all the time. Only when I want to go out or have company.
    I am afraid to take too much of it.

    I have been taking ibprophen for years, but have not tried the Advil PM, just wondering how it has worked for others.

    That's funny you asked this question. We were on vacation this past week and I left my ambien at home by mistake. I went to the store and bought Advil PM and it did not help me at all! I was sooooooooo tired because when I flare, I cannot sleep so I take ambien, well half of an ambien. The Advil PM was a disappointment but when I take Advil, the regular kind, it helps a lot.

    Someone told me that all of these "PM" OTC meds just had Benedryl, or the active ingredient in Benedryl, added to them. You know, like Tylenol PM, etc.

    Is this true?
