How Do TYLENOL Rapid Release Gels Offer Relief?
TYLENOL Rapid Release Gels offer 500mg of acetaminophen in every gelcap to provide you temporary relief of fever, minor aches and pains, including headache, backache, arthritis pain, pain from a common cold and premenstrual and menstrual cramps.
How Does Acetaminophen Work?
The acetaminophen in your TYLENOL gelcaps works by inhibiting chemical messengers called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins work by transmitting pains signals and fever signals. In response to injury or illness, your body produces prostaglandins to send messages to your brain that you are in pain. Acetaminophen is able to block the messages sent by prostaglandins to relieve you from pain and fever. Prostaglandins also promote inflammation and swelling in many of your body's tissues, but acetaminophen does not inhibit these functions. This is why acetaminophen is not a medicine with anti-inflammatory effects. The acetaminophen gelcaps are also known to cause less stomach irritation than other pain-relief medications, while also not inhibiting platelet aggregation and blood clotting.
