Acetaminophen is commonly known as paracetamol or APAP. Acetaminophen is a pain reliever and a fever reducer. Acetaminophen is used to treat many conditions such as a headache, muscle aches, arthritis, backache, toothaches, colds, and fevers. However, it can cause severe side effects on the liver, blood cell, and kidney. In rare cases, acetaminophen may cause a severe skin reaction. Paracetamol is part of the class of drugs known as "aniline analgesics"; it is the only such drug still in use today. It is not considered a NSAID because it does not exhibit significant anti-inflammatory activity (it is a weak COX inhibitor). It is widely used as Para-aminophenol (PAP) for industrial purpose, and it also has broad application range such as pharmaceuticals, dye industries, and chemical industries.
