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!

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.

After dislocating my ankle and fracturing it in two places, I was in excruciating pain. My doctor wanted me to wean myself off of heavy painkillers and onto Tylenol, since I'm allergic to NSAIDs like Advil and Asprin. Taking a 500mg pill of Tylenol was so helpful! I didn't feel drowsy, and I got out of bed 2 days after my surgery.

Tylenol is safe and effective. I use it when I'm having pains or mild headaches. It's effective and I'm happy with it. I like that it's safe for pregnant women and for people with Aspirin allergies. I will continue buying this.

The Tylenol 500mg is the brand and dosage that I keep in my purse and pop whenever a stress headache or a hangover comes on. You can literally buy it anywhere and not break the bank while getting a speedy relief from pain.

These work amazing for my headaches. We always have these in the house because it is usually what I take of I have any aches or pains. They seem to last a very long time as well. They are pretty affordable. I just pick them up when I am out grocery shopping if we need them. They are a life saver for sure! I would recommend!
