The expression acetaminophen and paracetamol together are derived form the chemical names for the composite, N-acetyl-para-aminophenol and para-acetlyl-amino-phenol, which are in certain situation, reduced to apap, for N-acetyl-para-aminophenol.

Paracetamol also known as acetaminophen basically is a widespread analgesic and antipyretic drug which is taken to obtain relief from fever, headaches, and additional small minor aches and pains. Paracetamol is also helpful in administrating more harsh pains, permitting lower dosages of extra non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or opioid analgesics to be applied, hence minimizing in general side-effects.

It is the chief component in many cold and flu medications; along with quite a few prescription analgesics. It is thought to be safe for human consumption in recommended doses, but due to its ample availability, premeditated or accidental overdoses are quite frequent.
