Continuously has been my go-to for headaches for years. The OG pain pills. These are available anywhere, I buy them at Target. Don't prefer a sugar coated ibuprofen pill

Usually I’m an Advil person, but when I have a more severe headache or pain I reach for Tylenol. I feel like it works better for more intense pains, especially menstrual pain. Highly recommend
