What for?: Depends on what you are taking the Advil (ibuprofen) for? Taking daily Advil (ibuprofen) could cause rebound headaches for example. It could also affect your kidneys especially if you had a condition that can affect those as well( like diabetes or hypertension for example).Depending on what type of pain you are taking it for will determine alternative treatments. See your doctor for evaluation and management of your pain
