  • "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

Works well when it kicks in, but I feel like it doesn't work very fast. I buy it to alternate with ibuprofen. Generic acetaminophen works just the same. It meets my expectations and have and will buy again.

Great price, great pain reliever, great deal. I use Tylenol for mostly any pain. It helps with fevers immediately and helps relieve my cramps. I love buying the 2 packs because I use Tylenol a lot.
I have chronic spinal issues, so I'm in a great deal of pain most of the time. Other than the prescription medications that my doctors recommend for me, this product is the only thing that helps with the daily pain. And it's also super affordable for being a brand name.

I love these for when I have a very strong headache or stronger pain. They relieve it better than other brands I've tried. Pills are small and easy to swallow. I would buy again and I always do!

I'm allergic to ibuprofen so I always have this on hand. It is great for fevers and minor aches and pains. Usually go for generic brands because of the price difference but you can't go wrong either way
