Tylenol Pain Reliever

Inflammation and pain caused by various conditions can often be relieved with Tylenol® (acetaminophen). Some of the conditions that this medication can help with include:
 
  • The flu
  • Muscle aches
  • Backache
  • Toothache.
  •  
When used as a pain reliever, Tylenol is taken every four to six hours, as needed. It is important to follow dosing guidelines carefully, even though this is a nonprescription drug, as acetaminophen poisoning is possible with Tylenol, and can be life-threatening.
 
Tylenol probably works to relieve pain by acting on certain chemicals in the body called prostaglandins. The medication likely inhibits their production and also blocks the formation of pain signals.
 
This medicine is approved for adults and children who are at least 12 years old. Younger children and infants will need to take a different form of Tylenol. People who have certain medical conditions or who take certain other drugs may need to take a different pain reliever altogether.
