- "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
This is good product when you are experiencing pain in any part of your body. I purchased this at a local drugstore and it was on the more expensive end. I will use this around once a week and I would use again.
Whenever I get a headache or my body hurts for whatever reason my house is always stocked with Tylenol. It’s what I am comfortable with. I can always rely on this extra strength to get me through the day!!
I suffer from reflux and can only use Tylenol (not Advil or Alieve). It works for minor headaches and minor aches and pain. I have a high tolerance for medication so I often feel I need something stronger.
Best at all times I alway reach for those probably that only pills that help with my head ache does the job better then Advil good value and good price I totally recommend this .
Works quickly and I don’t have to continually take them to stomp out my headache. Safe to use during pregnancy so I always have some on hand in case I need to use it. A big bottle will last you a whole.
Works for me whenever my body wants to cooperate. Bought it at Walgreens and was priced at what you could expect for a Walgreens. It works as described and only takes a half hour or so to kick in for me.
Tylenol is my go to for minor aches and pains. It works quite well for the average headache and also relieve a lot of my back pain. Size of the pills are good and not too big. Would recommend to anyone.
Love to keep a pack of these on me at all times! Never know when I will get a headache and what kind it will be be so I keep these on hand just in case. Work perfect. Pick some up at your local drug store
Always have in my house! Helps with any normal pains. It does meet my expectations. I recommend always buying the big bottle and keeping put up. Never know when a headache may arise or something similar!
This is one of the main pain killers we use in our household. It usually works pretty well for us! We buy it at Walmart or Walgreens. I use it maybe once a week or so. I would definitely buy this again!
