Acetaminophen

Similar to aspirin, acetaminophen can be utilized to treat a variety of aches, pains, and minor ailments. Though the exact processes involved are not fully understood, the compound is generally believed to provide temporary relief for such conditions by hindering the synthesis of substances necessary for the conduction of pain impulses through the body. Acetaminophen can also help reduce fevers by acting upon the temperature-regulating region of the brain, but does not possess any significant anti-inflammatory properties.
