Tylenol is a North American brand of drugs advertised for relieving pain, reducing fever, and relieving the symptoms of allergies, cold, cough, and flu. However, the effectiveness of acetaminophen (paracetamol) alone as an antipyretic (fever-reducing drug Therapies involving the combination of acetaminophen and aspirin, or alternating doses of acetaminophen and ibuprofen have shown somewhat greater antipyretic effect than acetaminophen alone. The active ingredient of its original, flagship product, paracetamol (called acetaminophen in North America), is marketed as an analgesic and antipyretic. Like the words "acetaminophen" and "paracetamol", the brand name is derived from the chemical name for the compound, N-acetyl-para-aminophenol (APAP). The brand is owned by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. - Source: Wikipedia
