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 tore my ACL about 5 years ago and every now and then when the weather changes its starts to ache! Tylenol really cleans up the pain fast and efficiently, making me forget about the old injury. Very satisfied.
Tylenol is a product that I have used since I was little and it is a very good headache and fever reducer. I take two tablets and feel fine in a matter of an hour. It is very fast to kick in and very effective.
Always works if I'm having pretty much any body pain usually kicks in within the hour and I'm good to go. I don't feel like it makes me drowsy and not able to do what I need to but just numbs the pain I'm having
Tylenol really helps relieve pain from muscle tension. I am repeat user if Tylenol. Thus product absolutely meets my expectations. The pro of using Tylenol is that it gives fast results. This product is perfect.
I honestly don't take pain pills other than for menstrual cramps. These work very well for that type of pain. I've also used these in the past for fever and work good as well. They are found at any drug store really :)
I like to take Tylenol best when it comes to relieving pain. To me, it seems to work the best and gets the job done. I usually don't take pain medications on a regular basis but when I do, this is my best friend.
The best thing I have taken for pain. It works very well. I have yet to be disappointed. It is about equal to its competitors depending on what you need it for. It's a great price. I buy it as soon as I run out.
This is the only over the counter pain med that I can take and it works. In my house we are a Tylenol family. No other brand compares, especially the price and quality of the product.
Tylenol has become a household name because they're good a what they do. This product is a good pain reliever and is works pretty fast. Whenever I don't use ibuprofen, I pop one of these for my menstrual cramps.
I have major shoulder pain and get frequent headaches, I’m not one who likes to take pain medicine because they usually don’t work. However these always, always relieve the tension and allow me to enjoy my days.
