Tylenol Tablets

Tylenol® (acetaminophen) is a nonprescription medication used to relieve pain and reduce fevers. Although its exact mechanism is known, this drug is believed to work by preventing certain chemicals in the body (called prostaglandins) from sending pain signals.
 
There are several different forms of Tylenol: tablets, caplets, gel tabs, and liquid. In general, these products are taken every four to six hours, as needed, for pain. They are approved for adults and children age 12 and older. Younger children should take Children's Tylenol or Infant Tylenol.
 
Regardless if a person is taking the liquid form, gel tabs, caplets, or tablets, Tylenol use should be carefully monitored, as acetaminophen poisoning is possible. Many other medications -- prescription and nonprescription -- also contain acetaminophen, and these need to be accounted for when taking a Tylenol dose.
