Uses

Notes
  • Acetaminophen does not cause the stomach and intestinal ulcers that NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen may cause.
  • However, acetaminophen does not reduce swelling (inflammation) like the NSAIDs do.
  • Consult your doctor for more details and to see which medication might be right for you.

  • If the room temperature is above 80 degrees F (27 degrees C), then store the medication in the refrigerator.
