Something thatreduces fever or quells it.
There are 3 classesof antipyretic medications that are sold OTC (over-the-counter) withoutprescription:
Salicylates --aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid), choline salicylate (Arthropan), magnesiumsalicylate (Arthriten), and sodium salicylate (Scot-Tussin Original);
Nonsteroidalanti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) -- ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen (Naprosyn,Aleve), and ketoprofen.
From anti-,against + the Greek pyretos, fever from pyr, fire. The same root gives rise topyrexia, a medical term for fever.
Antipyretic, fromthe Greek anti, against, and pyreticus, pertaining to fever, are substancesthat reduce fever. Antipyretics cause the hypothalamus to override aprostaglandin-induced increase in temperature. The body then works to lower thetemperature, resulting in a reduction in fever.
Most antipyreticmedications have other purposes. The most common antipyretics in the UnitedStates are ibuprofen and aspirin, which are used primarily as pain relievers.Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are antipyretic,anti-inflammatory, and pain relievers.
Painkiller is anymember of the group of drugs used to achieve analgesia, relief from pain.
Analgesic drugsact in various ways on the peripheral and central nervous systems. They aredistinct from anesthetics, which reversibly eliminate sensation. Analgesicsinclude paracetamol (known in North America as acetaminophen or simply APAP),the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as the salicylates, andopioid drugs such as morphine and oxycodone.
In choosinganalgesics, the severity and response to other medication determines the choiceof agent; the World Health Organization (WHO) pain ladder specifies mildanalgesics as its first step.
Analgesic choiceis also determined by the type of pain: For neuropathic pain, traditional analgesicsare less effective, and there is often benefit from classes of drugs that arenot normally considered analgesics, such as tricyclic antidepressants andanticonvulsants.
