I have been taking advil pm for over a year. Two every night, just about every night. If I don't take them for a day or two I am very nauseus. Is this related?
Hi--is it just nausea and nothing else like heartburn or cramping?

No, no other symptoms, just the nausea. I've tried several times, one time it was for about 5 days and I was nauseas every day.

OK. It's the benadryl in the Advil PM and not the ibuprofen that's causing this. If you aren't taking it for just sleep, if you switch to just the naproxen or regular Advil this shouldn't be a problem.

Any idea how long this will last before it's out of my system?

It would probably take about five days
