What Are Your Alternatives to Tylenol IV?

When you suffer from headaches or aches, you usually grab the Tylenol bottle to feel a bit better. There are many properties in Tylenol, or acetaminophen, that can help with fevers or pain. When finding relief, you should ask yourself a few questions about the types of pain you are feeling and what Tylenol IV alternatives, or non-IV alternatives, may be more appropriate.

How Does it Work?

Acetaminophen works by halting your brain from sending chemicals that alert you to pain. It doesn’t reduce inflammation or swelling. It is considered an ‘analgesic’ and ‘antipyretic’ drug, which relieves pain and fevers. Other over-the-counter drugs may be more appropriate for you if you look to reduce inflammation, such as Naproxen or Ibuprofen. Acetaminophen is one option for cold, cramping, toothaches, or a sore throat. Before reaching for medications, research other alternatives first to avoid overusing them.

Natural Alternatives

If you want to avoid using over-the-counter medications, there are a few options you can look into. One suggestion is to research herbs that can be useful. Things like ginger and mint can both reduce nausea and relieve pain. They have been highly effective for sinus issues and headaches. Ginger can also help alleviate upset stomachs, arthritis, and migraines. Certain foods like Capsaicin, a specific hot pepper, decrease substance P levels in our bodies, which tells our body when it’s hurt. Using these in teas or foods may help manage your discomfort.

If you find yourself with some dental pain, clove oil can be as equally effective as benzocaine, which is the ingredient often found in pharmacy treatments. Acupuncture or massage, other alternative treatments to help manage stress, pain, and inflammation. If you are looking for long-term aid, ensure that you engage in healthy activities like drinking water and exercise, which help regulate your body’s normal functions.
