Acetaminophen is an analgesic and antipyretic medication that is commonly used to alleviate mild to moderate pain arising from various conditions such as headaches, muscle aches, menstrual periods, colds, sore throats, toothaches, backaches, and reactions to vaccinations. It also has the ability to lower fever. The mechanism of action involves altering the body’s perception of pain and reducing body temperature.

Uses and Dosage

Acetaminophen is available in various forms such as tablets, chewable tablets, capsules, suspension or solution (liquid), extended-release (long-acting) tablets, and orally disintegrating tablets. It can be taken orally with or without food.

While acetaminophen is an over-the-counter medication, your doctor may prescribe it for certain conditions. Follow the instructions on the package or prescription label carefully, and if anything is unclear, ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain it.

If you are giving acetaminophen to a child, ensure that you read the package label carefully to ensure it is appropriate for their age. Do not give adult products to children, as some may contain too much acetaminophen. Check the package label to determine the right dose for your child’s weight or age, and seek medical advice if you’re unsure.

Acetaminophen can also be combined with other medications to treat cough and cold symptoms, and you should seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist regarding the best product for your symptoms. When using non-prescription cough and cold products, read the label carefully, as some may contain the same active ingredients and using multiple products simultaneously could lead to an overdose. This is especially important when administering medication to children.

Extended-release tablets should be swallowed whole, while orally disintegrating tablets can be dissolved or chewed before swallowing.

When using the suspension or solution, shake it well before each use to ensure proper mixing. Always use the measuring cup or syringe provided by the manufacturer to measure each dose and do not switch dosing devices between different products.

Contact your doctor if your symptoms worsen, or if you experience new or unexpected symptoms such as redness or swelling. Seek medical advice if your pain or fever persists beyond a certain duration.

If you are administering acetaminophen to a child and they develop new symptoms, contact their doctor immediately. Avoid giving acetaminophen to children with severe or persistent sore throat, as it may be a sign of a more severe condition.

Side Effects

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:

  • red, peeling or blistering skin
  • rash
  • hives
  • itching
  • swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs
  • hoarseness
  • difficulty breathing or swallowing


Before taking acetaminophen, inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies, including to this medication or any other substances. This is because the product may contain inactive ingredients that could trigger an allergic reaction or cause other problems.

You should also inform your doctor or pharmacist of your medical history, particularly if you have liver disease or if you regularly use or abuse alcohol.

Some forms of acetaminophen, such as liquid products, chewable tablets, or dissolving/effervescent tablets and powders, may contain sugar or aspartame. If you have diabetes, phenylketonuria (PKU), or any other condition that requires you to limit or avoid these substances in your diet, you should use caution when using these products.

If you are pregnant, you should inform your doctor before using acetaminophen.

Acetaminophen can pass into breast milk. If you are breastfeeding, you should consult your doctor before taking this medication.
