Is it dangerous to dissolve Advil (ibuprofen) before ingesting? My grandmother dissolves her Advil (ibuprofen) in her warm tea before she takes it. Is this ok? She does this with most of her medication.

If she continues her method, advise her to drink lots of water. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
