onoffonoffon: Acetaminophen (Tyelnol) works by basically blocking the COX from the video (Cox blocked?... anyway...) but it's not blocking them in the same place. It`s blocking COX enzymes in the central nervous system rather than out at the nociceptors, aka, your spine/brain areas. It`s also not a terribly well understood drug, so there are other things going on there, as well, that are not actually scientifically proven.

keith2: Take it with food. Vicodin is made of hydrocodone and.. guess what? Acetaminophen. They hydrocodone messes with your brain's receptors rather than the active slots on your nociceptors.

Draculya: The pharmacist in me cannot let this go as it is. Acetaminophen is NOT an NSAID (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). It is in fact classified as an analgesic, which does not help inflammation and pretty much just blocks pain.

Fleaman1797: It's cheap. It does work. It won`t kill you if you don`t take too much of it, much like anything else in life. Don`t use it every time you break a nail, and don`t think you can take a whole load of it at one time and you`ll be fine.
