Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

Yes, advil and tylenol-3 can be taken together.
Advil is ibuprofen and tylenol 3 contains paracetamol and codeine. Ibuprofen and codeine belong to different classes of pain-killer. Can be taken together if one is not working.

It is better to stop the medicine that is not working.

Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
