Usually yes: It depends upon what it is being taken for as advil (ibuprofen) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and can interfere with healing of injuries or bones.

Advil (ibuprofen): Unlikely; unless you have an allergic reaction or a sensitive stomach assuming you have taken one of each.

Yes: But it probably won't help much and can harm your stomach. Use omeperozole if stomach hurts.
