Can advil worsen antibiotic side effects?

Advil is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain and inflammation [1]. It is important to note that NSAIDs like Advil can cause stomach problems, including heartburn, indigestion, and stomach ulcers [2]. These side effects can be worsened if taken with antibiotics, particularly those in the tetracycline family [3]. Tetracyclines can bind to the metal ions in Advil, reducing its effectiveness and potentially increasing the risk of side effects [3]. Additionally, both Advil and tetracyclines can cause ringing in the ears as a side effect [3]. Therefore, it is important to talk to a healthcare provider before taking Advil with antibiotics, especially tetracyclines, to avoid worsening side effects.


Follow-up:   How long after taking advil should I wait to take antibiotics? Can I take advil with a probiotic to reduce side effects? Are there any alternative pain relievers to advil?
