How Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain Works
Having a cold is a pain - literally. When you have a cold, you may experience nasal congestion and pain. Sinus pressure and pain associated with the common cold are often a direct result of congestion. The achiness and soreness you feel throughout your face during a cold is in large part due to the fact that the swelling caused by a cold is shrinking the nasal and sinus cavities. In addition to nasal swelling, the body’s reaction to a cold virus can leave you feeling achy all over. That’s why you should consider treating congestion and pain with one medication to get relief from the symptoms that are dragging you down and wearing you out.

Some cold-sufferers treat only nasal congestion or the pain associated with the nasal congestion, and therefore only treat half of the problem. Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain provides fast, effective relief of your severe cold symptoms including both nasal congestion and pain. This Advil® formulation combines an effective decongestant, phenylephrine, which reduces swelling and allows the nasal and sinus airways to expand to their natural state to permit easier breathing, with the pain reliever ibuprofen, that reduces the achiness and pain associated with the common cold.
Some medications address nasal congestion, while others work to reduce pain, but Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain is specifically formulated to do both. Which means you can get back to what doing what you want to do – Advil® at Work™.
