Swollen glands and nose bleed after stopping medication for sinus problem. Done sinus surgery. Can I take Advil for pain?

I have a history of Sinus Infections. I had Sinus surgery years ago and have had many infections since. Last month, I was prescribed ratio-aclavulante 875 by my doctor. After a few days, the pain went away and being stupid, i did not finish the script. I woke up this morning with swollen glands and sinus s killing me again, blowing blood out of nose , etc. I started the prescription again, but have a lot of pain in the left lower jaw and gland. Can I take advil for the pain while waiting for the medicine to take affect?

It seems from the history that you have nasal bleeding associated with sinus problem and swollen glands. You can take advil, a pin killer tablet containing ibuprofen for pain relief.

Thank you
