No. The active ingredients in Aspirin, Tylenol, and Advil are not narcotics. Narcotics can only be prescribed by a physician. Over the counter products do not contain narcotics. There are some prescription medications that combine active ingredients from them with narcotics, but they have their own brand names and are not called Aspirin, Tylenol, or Advil.
No, Advil is a chemical called Ibuprofen and Aleve is the brand name for Naproxin Sodium. Nevertheless, they both have similar characteristics to aspirin - all three (aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxin sodium) are classified as NSAIDs, or Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, and share some side affects such as irritating stomach lining.
no. Advil is ibuprofen. Ibuprofen is sold under the trade names: Motrin and Advil. It is a NSAID drug, meaning it has antiinflammatory effects. Acetaminophen is Tylenol.

Pain medicines that contain aspirin will say it contains acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) in the list of ingredients. Examples of aspirin-containing products are Ecotrin, Bayer Aspirin, Excedrin, St. Joseph's aspirin. Motrin (Ibuprofen), Tylenol (Acetaminophen) and Aleve (Naproxen sodium) do not contain aspirin.
Taking Advil, since it is an aspirin regimen, can lower your risk of heart disease and heart attack. However, Advil isn't the best or the safest aspirin regimen to take. If you insist of taking an aspirin regimen every day, I would recommend Bayer aspirin regimen. But other than that, there are no really serious side effects. However, do not take an aspirin regimen if you are experiencing stomach problems. If your stomach feels like…
I did it as a science project and the Tylenol dissolved faster in water. Advil has an extra layer of medicine on it. im doing it as a project and the advil was faster. Actually the aspirin was the fastest but advil was faster than the Tylenol. The Tylenol was slower because it had a 2nd layer on the out side when the advil didnt.
