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
Very effective for pain control. Perfect for headaches and menstrual cramps. A must have in every household. I always keep this and ibuprofen in the medicine cabinet. Directions are easy to follow.
This product has been my saving grace throughout my pregnancy for migraines and back pain. I usually take Excedrin for migraines, but since it contains Advil, that is a no-go for pregnancy. Extra-Strength Tylenol has been a great stand-in.
Tylenol lo suelo tomar cuando tengo dolores de cabeza pero el 50% de las veces no me hace el efecto deseado. Cuando tengo dolor muscular en el cuello, siento que tylenol no me lo hace desaparecer. No me da tanto el efecto deseado
Took this after having my babies. It works pretty well, this is the only thing I reach for when I have an ache or pain. Effective but a tad pricey. It works very well for me so I don't mind a few extra dollars. Recommend for sure!
As much as I love pain other relievers, I was shocked when I realized how much tylenol I had around the house. Tylenol is a great pain reliever. Its fast acting and inexpensive. I'll be using it for years to come
I'm currently pregnant, so Tylenol is my go-to safe medication for pregnancy aches and pains. The extra strength works pretty good when I'm really struggling. Looking forward to having this baby and getting my back back in order!
Have used Tylenol for years, for many aches and pains. Can find it anywhere from grocery stores, convenient stores and gas stations.!Good value and trusted brand. Will always buy if and when needed
It's extra strength definitely does it's job! Not usually one to get headaches or pains and anything of that kind, but if I do, I use this and it normally alleviates the pain in less than an hour! I think it's affordable and very useful!
Great for fever! My all time favorite fever reducer. Some people also say that Tylenol helps them to sleep comfortably at night. Although I have yet to experience this, Tylenol is a very effective pain reliever.
This works fast and is my go to for any pain, fever or headaches that I have! The price is great to. It definitely Italy meets my expectations. It works faster than other brands that I have tried.
