Thanks for the query

Advil contains ibuprofen which can increase chances of bleeding in ITP. I would suggest you to take opioid analgesics instead like tramadol to prevent such misfortune. It is as potent as ibuprofen as a painkiller . Please XXXXXXX your doctor for a prescription.

I hope I have answered your query, please accept my answer if you have no further queries

I wish you good health
