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
I used to only take Tylenol as I couldn’t have blood thinners which are present in Advil. Very effective and a good alternative if you need to change medications for medical reasons.
The absolute best pain reliever. I don't take medication often but I usually go to Walgreens and purchase these when I'm really not feeling well. They work fast and are very effective.
These are a great aid for migraines and hangovers at that matter! I don't really use for body aches but this is some of the best for headaches which I have often
Tylenol is amazing for headaches and fevers and mild soreness and pain. I think it's more effective for headaches. Over all the product is pretty decent and I would highly recommend.
On days when my aches and pains are severe and I need to dial back the Advil, I will alternate with Tylenol and it seems to help. Doesn't seem to relieve my headaches as well though.
It works really quite fast in my opinion. I am someone who would take any medication as a last resort. I took Tylenol for my sprained foot as the Dr said it causes the least harm to my liver.
This is my go to pain reliever medication. It helps with cramps, headaches, back pain, and more. I can take it while breastfeeding without being worried. I would highly recommend this product.
Rarely. This product doesn't work for my headaches.! I stopped using it & moved on to aleve. I do use the Tylenol children's medicine for my kids. Not effective at all.. I've purchased it from many retail locations no I would not recommend the adult version of the medication
My go to for any pain I have because I know it works. It kicks in fast and lasts. You can purchase it anywhere in a variety of sizes. I use this weekly for headaches and body aches.
Tylenol has been in my family for years. I've taken them since I was a kid AMD always trusted them to get me through aches and pains will getting a good nights sleep.
