Possibly: It depends on the particular clinical pain issue (s) and the reason(s) for taking the pain medications. As long as there are no kidney or liver issues, it should be fine. It is necessary to stay within the recommended dosages /frequency of use and avoid using this combination of medications for more than a few days.

Simplify regimen: Ideally you should take only one analgesic at a time. Percocet is a combination of oxycodone and tylenol (acetaminophen). Advil is ibuprofen, a different medication.Try to use as little Percocet as possible and only if you really need it for severe pain to avoid dependence and tolerance. If the pain is milder and you do not suffer from ulcers, kidney disease or are in anticoagulants, it is ok to use advil instead.

Yes: Percocet is the brand name for a medication which contains Acetaminophen (brand name tylenol) and oxycodone, an opiate analgesic or narcotic medication. Advil is the brand name for ibuprofen, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication. Caution needs to be used in how much of each of these medications you take.
