Advil Allergy Sinus Overview

Updated: 

Advil Allergy Sinus is an over the counter medication used to treat the symptoms of colds, sinus congestion, and the flu. It is a single product containing 3 medications: ibuprofen, pseudoephedrine, and chlorpheniramine. Ibuprofen belongs to a group of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which work by providing pain/headache relief. Pseudoephedrine belongs to a group of drugs called nasal decongestants, which work by narrowing the blood vessels and reducing the swelling inside your nasal passage. Chlorpheniramine belongs to a group of drugs called Histamine H1 Antagonists (antihistamine). It works by blocking the action of histamine and allergy symptoms. 

This medication comes in a caplet form and is usually taken every 4 to 6 hours with food.

Common side effects of Advil Allergy Sinus include stomach upset, fast heart rate and shakiness. Advil Allergy Sinus can also cause drowsiness. Do not drive or operate heavy machinery until you know how this medication affects you.
