Paracetamol is an analgesic and antipyretic drug used for the temporary relief of a headache, fever, minor pain, muscle aches or the pain of arthritis. Paracetamol relieves pain in mild arthritis but has no effect on the underlying inflammation, redness and swelling of the joint. It does not cause the stomach irritation often associated with aspirin.
