Hi Skullies! I have a review for Children’s Advil® Sugar-Free Dye-Free Suspension! I received a bottle and some coupons from Smiley 360. :d

Official description
When your child has a fever, you know what it’s like to wait it out. Children’s Advil® Suspension reduces fever fast* – even faster than Children’s Tylenol®. It lasts longer*, too – up to 8 hours with just one dose. And Children’s Advil® also relieves aches and pains.

Where to buy
From CVS – 4 ounces for $6.99 USD.
From Amazon – 4 ounces for $5.99 USD.

Directions

  • Shake well before using.
  • Repeat dose every 6 to 8 hours, if needed.
  • Do not use more than 4 times in 24 hours.
  • Find right dosage on the chart. If possible, use weight for dosage; otherwise, use age.
  • Only use the measuring device that comes with the product to be sure you give the right dose. An ordinary kitchen teaspoon may not hold the right amount of medicine.
Weight(lb) Age(yr) Dose(tsp)
Under 24 lb Under 2 yr Ask a doctor
24 – 35 lb 2 – 3 yr 1 tsp
36 – 47 lb 4 – 5 yr 1 ½ tsp
48 – 59 lb 6 – 8 yr 2 tsp
60 – 71 lb 9 – 10 yr 2 ½ tsp
72 – 95 lb 11 yr 3 tsp

Packaging
It’s a white 4 ounce bottle that comes in a blue box. It has product information on the box and the bottle. The box and bottle both have yellow, red and black features with the logo.

Scent and formula
It smells like berries! Fumiko says it’s sweet and tastes like berries and it tastes good, not gross.

Ingredients
Active: Ibuprofen 100 mg (NSAID)* Fever reducer/Pain reliever. Inactive: artificial flavor, carboxymethylcellulose sodium, citric acid monohydrate, edetate disodium, glycerin, microcrystalline cellulose, polysorbate 80, propylene glycol, purified water, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, sorbitol solution, sucralose, xanthan gum.

When I received this Fumiko was sick. Normally I just buy whatever store brand I happen to find. We were almost out of what we had, so I was really glad to get this. Giving Fumiko any kind of liquid medicine is a nightmare. She HATES the taste, it makes her gag and she usually gets a stomach ache. I’ve usually got to chase her down and corner her and then it takes me a good 10 minutes to get her to take it. This stuff is great. It’s dye free and sugar free and she likes it. I don’t have to fight her to take this, she takes it willingly. During the day she’s able to go to school and take part and function and not be a zombie, but at night she passes out cold and sleeps through the night. She gets horrible fevers when she gets sick and is just miserable with aches and pains and being tired and cranky. This keeps her fevers down and the aches to a minimum. This was a huge blessing to get! I will be keeping a bottle of this on hand for future sick times! I definitely recommend it, it works great! You might have trouble finding it in store. I can’t seem to find it, however it’s available online at several stores! Seriously pick this up. You can find their Facebook page here. And lastly you can get a $1 coupon here!

  • do not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours, unless directed by a doctor
  • children under 12 years: ask a doctor

Packaging
I received samples in foil packets. They are white with blue accents and lettering. They also have the Advil logo. It has product information on both sides.

Scent and formula
These have no scent and the taste is sweet, but there is no flavor. I received the tablets. They are round and flat. The coating is a peachy beige color and the inside is white. The Advil logo is printed on one side in black.

Ingredients
Active: Ibuprofen 200 mg (provided as ibuprofen sodium 256 mg) (NSAID)*. Inactive: acesulfame potassium, caramel color, carnauba wax, colloidal silicon dioxide, copovidone, ferric oxide, hypromellose, mannitol, medium-chain triglycerides, microcrystalline cellulose, natural and artificial flavor, pharmaceutical ink, polyethylene glycol, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, sucralose, titanium dioxide.

I received 8 sample packets and gave 4 away. I’ve taken Advil in the past; migraine, tablets, gel caps, etc. I used to pop Advil Migraine like it was candy. I eventually stopped taking over the counter pain relievers because my pain got so bad they just weren’t helpful anymore. I got on Gabapentin which helped with nerve pain. Over the years I’ve taken over the counter pain pills occasionally, mostly whatever store brand I happened to be at! I’ve taken these a couple of times. I find that they do kick in a little faster than what I normally take, and they do help. I have been getting more headaches and migraines again, while these don’t touch a migraine, they did help with a headache I had which is more than the ones I usually try do. I also took some on Sunday. We did pumpkins on Saturday, which resulted in me doing most of the work and by Saturday night my right shoulder was in a lot of pain. I figured I’d sleep it off, but Sunday it was still hurting, so I popped a couple of these and it took the edge off. I think next time I get some OTC pain relievers I’ll be getting a bottle of these. They seem to work faster and a litter better than what I am use to. I also noticed these to make me sick to my stomach, which is something I’m use to when I take OTC pain relievers. Some upset my stomach worse than others, but these don’t at all, which is a big plus. These are also fairly inexpensive. You can find these online at a lot of place and also in store.
