4 hours is what I’ve always been told but it kind of depends on the dose of pills. Make sure you don’t exceed the daily limit for either

Tylenol maximum daily dose is 4000mg per day. Advil maximum daily dose is 1200mg per day. Since Tylenol and Advil should be taken every six hours I would taken them 3 hours apart. So if you take Advil at 9am, take Tylenol at 12pm, Advil at 3pm, Tylenol at 6pm, Advil at 9pm and so on. Especially with Tylenol never take more than the daily maximum dose.

If you want to take them further apart that's fine, but don't wait until the pain is unbearable because then nothing will help.
