Tegretol and Advil (ibuprofen): Yes - there is a minor interaction between Tegretol (carbamazepine) and ibuprofen in the sense that the metabolism of Ibuprofen will be increased so the levels in your system will be lower - meaning you may need to take more Advil. BUT my recommendation - start taking both medications and see if you notice anything. If not - do NOT increase the dose of Ibuprofen (Advil)

No: Try APAP (Tylenol). The other is just more of the same type. APAP acts differently.
