In brief: Acetaminophen
Acetaminophen is over the counter, not related to aspirin.
Tylenol (acetaminophen) brand and others. Fever reducer, relieves pain, not antiinflammatory. Many nsaids, like Ibuprofen (advil, motrin, aleve) are chemically related to aspirin; may not be safe for patients with true Aspirin allergy.

Remember that Alka-Seltzer has aspirin in it, too!
