Tylenol has always worked for me when needed. What I really wanted to review is these little bottles. I love them, I refill them when they are empty, as they are a perfect size for a purse or backpack.

I use this if I have a headache or a migraine coming on. Although my migraine medication that I got prescribed from my doctor works the best. I would recommend this if you need something more affordable!

I take one every 4-6 hours whenever I have severe pain. I get it from walmart and its a nice price. It really helps with the pain. The only downside is it takes sometime to kick in for me. I recommend.

Extra strength Tylenol is all I use to relieve aches and pains. I've used Tylenol since high school sports so the regular strength does not work for me. Tylenol seems to take most pains and aches away.

I use Tylenol extra strength just about everyday. It's a great product and works quite well and I'm happy with how great it is. Works better than Advil and I will continue to take and buy it. It's great.
