Advil Cold and Sinus contains a combination of ibuprofen and pseudoephedrine. It is used to treat stuffy nose, sinus congestion, cough, and pain or fever caused by the common cold or flu. See https://www.drugs.com/mtm/ibuprofen-and-pseudoephedrine.html

There has been links of bronchospasm (narrowing of the airways) with ibuprofen especially if the patient is sensitive to aspirin.
If you know aspirin makes your asthma symptoms worse I would recommend not taking Advil Cold and Sinus. If you are not sensitive to aspirin it is probably ok to take. However, if you notice your asthma is getting worse stop taking the tablets.
