Official answer. Acetaminophen only reduces pain and fever, while ibuprofen also reduces inflammation in addition to pain and fever. Other key differences: Some research suggests that NSAIDs like ibuprofen are more effective than acetaminophen at reducing pain.
Acetaminophen is a non-narcotic analgesic and fever reducer. It is available by prescription or over-the-counter (OTC). Millions of people use over-the-counter (OTC) pain relievers every day to treat minor pain.
Acetaminophen is used to relieve mild to moderate headaches, muscle pain, menstrual bleeding, colds and sore throats, toothache, back pain, and reactions to vaccines (injections), and to reduce fever.
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
NSAIDs are the most effective oral medications for OA. These include ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), naproxen (Aleve), and diclofenac (Voltaren, others). All work by blocking enzymes that cause pain and swelling.
Acetaminophen helps reduce fever and/or mild to moderate pain (such as headache, back pain, aches/pain due to muscle strain, cold or flu). The antihistamine in this product may cause drowsiness, so it can also be used as a nighttime sleep aid.
