Tylenol® Extra Strength Caplets for Adults
- "I get headaches more than I'd like to, so I just take one and I will start to feel better after a bit." in 1 review
Though Tylenol does not provide the same degree of pain relief that ibuprofen does, I appreciate them because they do provide some relief and do not cause stomach issues the way anti-inflammatory pain meds do.
These really work! I only need one for a headache or cramping. Very effective and do not have many side effects. They are also affordable. Can be used for any aches or pain. These are my favorite and definitely have them in the house at all times
Ever since I had surgery, I had a hard time feeling the effects of over the counter pain medicines. But Tylenol Extra Strength never fails to work!! This is the only OTC I will use, and for someone who is an athlete, it is an absolute life saver!
I go with Tylenol extra strength whenever I’m having a headache or I’m in some sort of pain. It kicks in very fast and last a while. I especially use it when it’s that time of the month.
Always a good product to use for a general headache. I don't find it helps with my body aches and pains as well as others though. I use when I have a minor headache a few times a month. I would recommend to those with light to moderate headaches.
I always take these when I have a headache. I have a hard time finding a pain reliever that will effectively eliminate or soften my headache. I always purchase these at Kroger.
Tylenol Extra Strength is a life saver. I got a piercing on my inner ear and it hurt so bad I was literally crying. I took 2 of these and the pain was gone in about an hours time. I went from a 10 to a 0 on pain levels. I've also used it in a pinch for migraines and it was pretty helpful.
Tylenol just speaks for itself . It’s always my go to pain reliever . It always helps with whatever pain I’m having whether it’s headaches , stomach aches and it does wonders when you have fevers . I definitely recommend giving Tylenol a try .
Let me just tell you right now this stuff is a LIFE SAVOR after a night out on the town. It's a reasonable price and works fast. It meets all expectations one could have for it. I buy it every time I have a hang over and it's never failed me.
Tylenol is a great pain reliever and the extra strength ones go above and beyond repairing your aches and pain. Although the pill size is above average, I don't mind at all! The outcome is amazing, you'll feel as good as new in a few minutes.
