Abensanil is also known by these two popular medications being sold over the counter: Tylenol and Paracetamol. Abensanil's chemical compound is para-acetylaminophenol.

Depending on the patient's purpose of taking the drug, it could relieve pain and at the same time return the body temperature to normal.
