Try not to worry: You don't say why you needed to take advil (ibuprofen) so often, but you might want to have that checked by a doctor. If you followed directions about dosage limits, it should not be a problem. Of course you will die - we all will - but not likely from this medication. Talk to a doctor or pharmacist for clear (perhaps printed) advise on otc drug use. Relax and take care.

Advil (ibuprofen) pm: like all other medications, has potential side effects. Taking as prescribed every other night should not kill you.
