About Acetaminophen
Doctors know that acetaminophen works well to relieve minor pain. However, the way this happens is not completely understood. It reduces a fever by acting on the heat-regulating center of the brain, telling it to lower the body's temperature.

Acetaminophen comes in capsule, tablet, chewable tablet, liquid, drops, extended-release tablet, orally disintegrating tablet, and rectal suppository forms. You may take it with or without food.

Follow the instructions on the label or your doctor's instructions while taking acetaminophen.

Acetaminophen is usually taken as needed, but if you are taking acetaminophen regularly and miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it's almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose when it's time.

Store acetaminophen at room temperature.
