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.

That is alot: The more Ibuprofen you take, the more likely you will end up with an ulcer or GI bleed. Usually i avoid ove 800mg every 8 hours.
