This product is ok for a couple hours but in no time you're needing more medicine to help, whether it be cramps or a headache this pill only gives you small temporary relief.

This is my go-to pain reliever. I'm not big into taking meds at all, so I only take these for pain. The coating of the pill isn't powdery, and isn't hard to swallow at all.

This is the only thing I can take right now (because I am pregnant) for my migraines and it works just as good as my prescription for migraines! I was definitely surprised

I use to only take ibuprofen, but recently had to switch because of my blood pressure. Tylenol is apparently more high blood pressure friendly and gets the job done just as well. I carry a bottle in my purse with me at all times.

Headaches are no joke but Tylenol completely resolves that. The only con I have about this is it takes a little longer to start working but it's good once it's starts working.

It's a good product for pain but it is not like an immediate pain reliever because when you have to wait a couple minutes before you get ease but it still works nonetheless
