Frequently Asked Questions

What is Acetaminophen?

Acetaminophen is an over-the-counter drug used to relieve mild to moderate headaches, menstrual pain, muscle pain, toothaches, colds and sore throats, and backaches. It may also be used to relieve pain in osteoarthritis (a condition in which there is a breakdown of the lining of joints).

What are the uses of Acetaminophen?

Acetaminophen belongs to a class of medications called analgesics (pain killers) and antipyretic (fever reliever). It mainly acts by reducing prostaglandins—natural chemicals in the body that cause inflammation and swelling.

Acetaminophen relieves pain by increasing your pain threshold. This means it will require a greater amount of pain for your body to feel it.

It alleviates fever by acting on the heat-regulating center of your brain. Acetaminophen guides the brain center to lower your body's temperature if it increases,

Since, it is a pain killer; it is used to relieve mild to moderate pains caused by the following;

Your doctor may also use it temporarily to lower body temperature during fever. The medication may be prescribed for other uses; ask your physician or pharmacist for detailed information.

How do you use Acetaminophen?

  • Read the patient information leaflet if available from the pharmacist before you start taking Acetaminophen and reach on time you get your refill. Ask your doctor or pharmacist queries if you do not understand anything described on the patient information leaflet.
