I have chronic migraines and daily headaches. When I notice my warning signs for an oncoming migraine I reach for Tylenol extra strength. It stops my headache before it gets full blown. I love Tylenol!

Tylenol is what I always take for headaches. It seems to be the only thing that works, compared to its competitors and alternatives. The price is very reasonable so I keep a bottle handy at all times.
Love this product as well !!! Just as good as other pain medicines for head aches that is ... not for migraines ! I get mines at Walmart all the time ! It works for the price ! Great work you guys !!

I suffer for migraines and these pills help me the most. I will always go for Advil, it’s the only thing that has helped me over the years. I will never take another pain medication.

Tylenol works exactly like it's supposed to. For me, it provides pain relief in about 25-45 minutes. Not super fast, not super slow, but super effective. However, I think it's always best to buy the not-brand-name version of medicine - it's all the same active ingredient, so why pay more than you should? That being said, this works perfectly, so five stars.

This is always stocked in my medicine cabinet. I think it works pretty good, but most of the time I need a couple doses throughout the day in order for best results

Works well with my other med for my fibro. Easy on my stomach. I take a med for GERD too. Sometimes I wish it had a little more pain relief though. I do find Tylenol brand a bit expensive and do buy a generic instead. Coupons don't ever bring the price down enough to bother using it.
