Thank you for your question.

I do not know what vitamins you are taking but be that as it may it would be extremely unlikely that Advil or vitamins are causing an elevation of your alk. phosphatase. Alkaline phosphatase may be coming from the liver or it may be coming from the bone. There is a simple test called GGT that your doctor can order in order to tell whether it is coming from the liver or from the bone.
