Your doctor is the best person to determine the best analgesic for your arthritis discomfort. That being said . . .

Paracetemol is, of course, another name for acetaminophen (Tylenol). It is perfectly safe as long as the person taking it is not a regular or heavy drinker - it should not be used in such a situation, as severe liver damage can occur. But more to the point, if the sufferer with arthritisactually gets good relief from the paracemetol, they are very lucky - it usually does not work all that well for Arthritis pain in adults. It does for some, yes - but not for the majority.
