Brand name for Ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflamatory drug. Works by blocking the enzyme cyclooxygenase , which is responsible for the production of prostaglandins (an inflammatory molecule) through the arachadonic acid cascade. Although sold as a racemic mixture, the (S) isomer is most effective, although the (R) isomer is converted to the (S) isomer in the body and used. Used for the relief of minor pain, has the typical list of side effects which may actually be worse then the minor pain you took it to relieve. Works well to alleviate hangovers if taken before going to sleep, slightly less risky to the liver then Tylenol.
I popped some Advil last night before passing out.

A girl that looks hot at first, but after a short period of time you realize that she isn't all that great.
If you have ever had a candy coated advil pill, then you will know that they taste pretty good when you first put them in your mouth, however, after a short period of time they taste disgusting. I saw this girl today, and she looked pretty good, but as usual, she was a typical advil girl and I got outta there.
