Is Acetaminophen the same as Tylenol?

Official Answer by 9 Feb 2016

Yes, acetaminophen is the same as Tylenol.

Acetaminophen is the generic name for the brand name medication Tylenol, made by McNeil Consumer.

Acetaminophen is a pain reliever for mild to moderate pain, such as headaches, muscles aches, backache, and toothaches, and fevers. Acetaminophen does not have anti-inflammatory effects like ibuprofen, but may be safer to take if you use a blood thinner.

Typically, generic acetaminophen or store brands would be more affordable than the brand name product Tylenol.
