Dear student
 
Antipyretics are substances that reduce fever. Antipyretics cause the hypothalamus to override a prostaglandin-induced increase in temperature. The body then works to lower the temperature, which results in a reduction in fever. Most antipyretic medications have other purposes.

The most commonantipyreticsin the United States are ibuprofen and aspirin, which are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used primarily as analgesics (pain relievers), but which also haveantipyreticproperties; and acetaminophen (paracetamol), an analgesic with weak anti-inflammatory properties.
