[The efficacy of paracetamol (Tylenol) and acetyl salicylic acid (Aspirin) in treating postoperative pain].

Abstract

In a randomized, double-center, double-blind, parallel group study the analgesic effect of a single dose of paracetamol (1000 mg) and acetyl salicylic acid (1000 mg) was compared with placebo in patients with moderate to severe postoperative pain following the surgical removal of a wisdom tooth. The most important finding was the statistically significantly shorter period until the onset of the action of paracetamol as against acetyl salicylic acid.
