Not really. While its candy coating is alluring on the surface, Advil is simply a brand name; its active ingredient is ibuprofen, a type of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Advil might contain slightly different additives than a generic ibuprofen—if you’re curious about this, consult your pharmacy—but both should be equally effective at treating your symptoms.
