Answer

Analgesics and Antipyretics

Analgesics and antipyretics improve patient comfort and reduce fever.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Panadol)

Nonopiate, nonsalicylate analgesic and antipyretic. Reduces fever by acting directly on hypothalamic heat-regulating centers, which increase dissipation of body-heat via vasodilation and sweating.
