Layman's explanation: Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in Tylenol. It is an odorless, white and crystalline powder with analgesic (pain relieving) and antipyretic (fever reducing) properties that possess a slightly bitter taste. Acetaminophen is used for the relief of fever as well as aches and pains associated with many conditions such as arthritis. However, acetaminophen has no effect if the pain is due to inflammation. The most serious side effect is liver damage due to large doses, chronic use or accompanied use with alcohol or other drugs that also damage the liver. Also, some people can be allergic to acetaminophen which can cause a rash or swelling but these reactions are rare. Acetaminophen has minor uses in the manufacture of azo dyes and as a stabilizer for hydrogen peroxide, photographic chemicals and as a chemical intermediate for pharmaceuticals.
