What is Tylenol used for?

Tylenol is a medication that contains acetaminophen (or paracetamol in other words) - a substance that is used worldwide to treat pain and fever. Depending on the product, the formulation of the drug may vary, as some additional active ingredients can be added to target specific symptoms. Those include:

  • Reducing pain;
  • Reducing fever; and
  • Relieving symptoms of allergies, cold, cough, headache, or flu.

Therefore, depending on your illness or health problem, you may use this calculator to check your Tylenol arthritis dosage, or if you are experiencing a really bad headache, maybe Tylenol Extra Strength is what you are looking for 🧐.
