Hi there,
Acetaminonophen is paracetamol or crocin and is considered one of the safest drugs out there. There has been concerns of liver toxicity with very high intake and may be prolonged intake like for years, otherwise its a very well tolerated medicine. It is a common ingredient of pain killer combos used in carcinoma patients.
In case you still want to know drugs without acetaminophen , some of commonly used are codeine, tramodol, ibugesic , mefenamic acid , diclofenac etc.
Take care
