Usually ok: Advil has ibuprofen, a different ingredient that is not in Tylenol (acetaminophen) #3. Advil contains no narcotic. Thus, it is usually fine to take Advil for pain if a person is also taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) #3 for pain. If worried, one can ask the oral surgeon who did the extraction.
