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
This were my life saver when i was pregnate this is the only thing i could ever take so they are good and also pregnancy friendly but remember its better not to drink medicine when pregnant
I'm pregnant so I'm limited as to what I can take. When I suffered a recent sunburn, this extra strength Tylenol was exactly what I needed (as well as lidocaine-aloe). Definitely recommend!
It works great. If i have a headache and any minor pain i take tylenol and boom headache or pain is gone. If i take it right when i feel a migraine coming on i dont end up having a migraine
I’m unable to take a lot of medication due to it making me sick to my stomach.. but Tylenol has always been the one thing to kick my migraine when it comes! It works better than most things I’ve tried.
Tylenol works great for headaches and minor pain relief. This product always meets my expectations. Very effective for helping minor aches and pains and I love that you can purchase at any drugstore or pharmacy
I cannot use NSAIDS due to stomach surgery. Therefore, I rely on acetaminophen. Tylenol extra strength helps with headaches, body pains and fevers in a timely manner. I definitely recommend it.
These are great for managing my pain. They are easy to swallow. I am reaching for a pain relief 2 to three times a week being a cna at the hospital your back and knees can hurt from time to time these are great and I recommend them to everyone and my coworkers
Easy to take and easily fits into any purse or little pouch. I usually take two pills to make sure it keeps me pain free all day. For a descent size bottle it's affordable and works good.
Make sure to take these bad boys after a night of drinking. (If you are 21+ or of legal drinking age in your country). Super affordable and portable. Helps so much with head aches and cramping.
Tylenol is not my go to pain reliever... it just isn't. But while I was pregnant these were my life saver. I couldn't have made in through those nine months with out them. I am truly thankful.
