No way, aspirin is an anti inflammatory, acetaminophen is tylenol.

No, they are no the same. Acetaminophen is a centrally acting analgesic and antipyretic agent. Acetaminophen is not considered a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) because of its negligible anti-inflammatory properties. Aspirin is a antiplatelet, antiarthritic, and anti-inflammatory (NSAID) agent depending on the dosage.
