In-patient
Can people get addicted to Advil or other pain relievers?
                     




GD-Fan
Yes


crude_oil
Sure you can. I think sometimes it just better to live with minor aches and pains.


Jamie
Advil and pain killers like that are not addictive, there is no addictive ingredient in them, something with codeine in it is addictivie though.

It is possible to become psychologically addicted meaning you think you have to take the medication to function in life or to deal with something you are feeling. Therefore you could be psychologically addicted to Advil. That is different than being physically addicted. Physically addicted is when your body has developed a chemical reliance on the medication such that if it were suddenly stopped, you would experience physical symptoms of withdrawal like sweating, fast heart rate, nausea, irritabliity etc. Examples are narcotics, amphetamines, barbiturates, nicotine, alcohol and others. There is no physical addiction to Advil meaning that if you stop taking it, you will not experience physical withdrawal symptoms.

Yes, my Mother did. It started with Nuprin way back in the day, then Advil, then Orudis, then Aleve. Then going to the ER for narcotics. She was going through withdrawl from pschychiatric medication and got terrible headaches. After awhile, the only treatment were narcotic injections, then detox at a local hospital!! Be careful with pain medication!

Not Advil, it does nothing for me, but vicodin and stuff like that make you feel loopy and some people like the effect.


mikerferrell

Not the same as heroin or cocaine, but I know people that pop them constantly. I gues if something relieves pain it is easy to get addicted to.


miu miu
yes. people can get addicted to basically anything.

Question: Is Advil addictive? Is it harmful to take more than 2 Advil at a time?

Answer: Advil is not addictive. The prescription dose for most patients of Advil is 400mg 4X a day or 800mg 2X a day. Advil is 1/2 the prescription dose so in general not a problem-depending on how many you take a day 1600 mg is the usual highest you should take.

In fact, Advil is one of the most recommended drugs to use if you are going through withdrawal symptoms from dependence on a different drug because it is not in any way addictive.

Oxycotin is a very addictive painkiller. Advil, Tylenol and other over the counter pain relief are not.

Shocking - I found this while researching your question...

"In recent years, research has shown that doctors' fears that patients will become addicted to pain medication, known as "opiophobia," are largely unfounded. Studies indicate that most patients who receive opioids for pain, even those undergoing long-term therapy, do not become addicted to these drugs. The very few patients who develop rapid and marked tolerance and addiction to opioids are usually those who have a history of psychological problems or prior substance abuse."
