In brief: Similar
Meclomen (meclofenamate) is considered a nonsteroidal medication which is the type of medication that both advil and Motrin are.
They all have similar side effects including possible heart problems, GI irritation including gastritis and ulcers and potential kidney disease.These are the more severe potential risks.
