Acetaminophen is an analgesic and antipyretic medication that is commonly used to alleviate mild to moderate pain resulting from various causes, such as headaches, muscle aches, menstrual periods, colds, sore throats, toothaches, backaches, reactions to vaccinations, and osteoarthritis.

Acetaminophen’s analgesic effects are achieved by altering the way the body senses pain, while its antipyretic properties help reduce fever and cool the body.

Uses and Dosage

There is a wide range of acetaminophen brands and forms available in the market. Review the dosing directions for each product, as the amount of acetaminophen may vary. Refrain from exceeding the recommended dosage of acetaminophen.

When administering acetaminophen to a child, ensure that you use a product specially formulated for children. Follow the recommended dosage indicated on the product package, based on your child’s weight or age.

Before use, shake suspension medication well before each dose. Some liquid medications may not require shaking before administration. Follow all instructions on the product package and utilize the provided dose-measuring spoon, dropper, or syringe to ensure accurate dosing.

For rapidly-dissolving tablets, chew or allow them to dissolve on the tongue, then swallow with or without water. For chewable tablets, ensure that they are thoroughly chewed before swallowing.

Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets, as doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Swallow the tablets whole.

For effervescent tablets, dissolve the recommended dose in an appropriate amount of water and consume.

Pain medications work best when taken at the first signs of pain. Waiting until the symptoms have worsened may reduce the medication’s efficacy.

Refrain from taking this medication for fever for more than 3 days, or for pain for more than 10 days in adults (5 days in children) without first consulting your doctor. If your child is experiencing a sore throat, especially with high fever, headache, or nausea/vomiting, consult your doctor immediately.
