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 am allergic to NSAIDs so Tylenol has become my go to OTC for pain relief. I try to take any OTC sparingly but I pay particular attention to how much Tylenol I use. That said, Tylenol works great to relieve my headaches, menstrual cramps, and other aches and pains. Just watch your dose carefully to avoid the nasty side effects they advertise.
I have bad back pain and extra strength Tylenol is the only medicine that really seems to help that. The price is very comparable to other medicines on the market. I definitely recommend for any type of muscle pain!
Tylenol has always worked for me I use it every month during my menstrual cycle it takes away the pain almost instantly I will always buy Tylenol it is affordable and it works I would definitely recommend it to others as well thank you
Extra strength Tylenol is pretty much all I take I recently had a procedure done and this saved me from having to deal with all the pain that came along with it! This was a life saver for a few days!
I get super bad headaches because I work the night shift and I'm up all night and my body just doesn't cooperate that well so I get these really bad headaches if I take two of these my headache is gone for the whole entire day I can sleep I can wake up sometimes even use this to help me sleep this is a really good pain product?.
I use this all the time. It's so handy to throw in your purse, bag, or pocket. I keep one in my purse all the time because you never know when you might get a headache, or any thing really. Tylenol works for me. I use it whenever I need it and it helps me get through whatever issue I have. And it's nice to have, if anyone else needs one 😊
I was not very impresses with my Tylenol experience at all. I took it because I was having some lower back pain after going to the gym, & it did not do anything for it. I also took it to try to alleviate menstrual cramps & it helped a little, but not as well as Advil. I probably will not buy this product again nor recommend it.
Tylenol is my go to pain reliever for any kind of aches that I encounter. I find that it is very effective and will kick in after about 30 minutes once taken. It is safe for pregnant woman as well as people who don't like to take aspirin all the time. I recommend Tylenol Extra Strength for your over the counter pain reliever.
Perfect to carry around in my purse. You never know when you need a Tylenol or when anyone around you is in need of one. Doesn't take space at all! $ you could refill it at any time!
