My doctors always tell me to take my meds with a little water if I am suppose to be taking any and to take them the morning before fasting blood work. You need to ask that question by calling your doctor's office and asking his secretary who will get the answer for you and call you back if she does not get it immediately.

If you can handle not taking it that would be best but you can take it before a blood test. Inform the person drawing the blood that you have taken it.

You should definitely not take tablets before a fasting blood test. This is for the same reason that you should not eat food.

ibuprofen should not be taken on an empty stomach, as with all anti-inflamatory medications it can cause ulceration of the gut wall and food reduces this possibility.

No. While you are fasting you are weaker and your body is very vulnerable. If you take even one Advil, probably containing 500 ML, then your body will take it as food and respond horribly.
