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 like Tylenol, but I'm not a huge fan of how expensive it is. I have found that it works a lot better than say, Advil, but the generic brand usually works well enough for me. It is very helpful though, and so if you are ever in a crunch it is worth the money, it just isn't my first choice.
When I was pregnant the only pain pills we were allowed to use is Tylenol. That says how safe it is to me. It gets the job done with the one recommendation extra strength capsule. I love it.
Very effective in relieving symptoms of pain and reducing aches associated with cold and flu. Very affordable and widely available at most retailers. Does not cause drowsiness and isn’t tough on digestive system.
I believe all medicines don’t work, and this happened to be one of those. When u have a really bad headache i aspect the pain to have at least gone down a bit within two hours. Would I purchase again,maybe not.
This relieves pain pretty quickly. I reach for this the most because I have 4 kids and need to feel better fast and this gets the job done! I get this at my local grocery stores and the price is not bad.
I will never buy Tylenol again. I was having super painful period cramps and took 3 of these and it did not help what so ever for me. Everyone prefers different types of pain relievers but I will not reach for this one again as it didn’t help me personally. Extra strength was not at all for me
This is great for any aches, pains, or headaches I get, especially when associated with my period. Super helpful and not too expensive. Also easy to find as it is found in most stores near me. I recommend it.
Definitely don't have anything bad to say about these multi packs of medicine. They work absolutely great for a small to medium size work place where you don't want everyone digging into a single bottle of pills. They also make it easy to keep track of stock and when you need to reorder.
I normally do not take any medications what so ever. But I find I am always reaching for Tylenol Extra Strength because it has always seemed to work for me quickly. I highly recommend.
