Re: Aleve, Zopiclone, Lyrica to name a few

acetaminophen (Paracetamol; Tylenol) belongs to a class of drugs called analgesics (pain relievers) and antipyretics (fever reducers).

Acetaminophen relieves pain by elevating the pain threshold, that is, by requiring a greater amount of pain to develop before it is felt by a person.

It reduces fever through its action on the heat-regulating centre of the brain. Specifically, it tells the centre to lower the body's temperature when the temperature is elevated.

Acetaminophen relieves pain in mild arthritis but has no effect on the underlying inflammation, redness and swelling of the joint.

Acetaminophen , unlike other common analgesics such as aspirin and ibuprofen, has no anti-inflammatory properties, and so it is not a member of the class of drugs known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs.

Acetaminophen is also known as paracetamol and Tylenol.
