Hello and thanks for the query.
  Terazosin relaxes the smooth muscles of the bladder neck and the prostate, increasing urine flow.
There is no problem taking Advil or acetaminophen along with terazosin,but you should inform your doctor about it.
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any other query.
Best of luck.
