Gets rid of headaches really easy and last 4-5 hours! Always use this after a game when I have a headache or I'm a little sore! I get mine at cvs and it's super affordable like under $10! I recommend!

Tylenol is my go to product when I have a headache. I love that I can pick it up at Walgreens or CVS. It is a good value and I love that it comes as a two pack. It is handy to have a couple in my purse and not have to take the whole bottle. I would totally  recommend it.

I've taken a lot of Tylenol over the years. I try not to use my prescription meds unless I'm in excruciating pain. I take about three and it'll last me about three hours before I had to take more. Maybe I'm just used to the amount but it gets the job done even if it's temporary.

Tylenol extra strength is a lifesaver in times of discomfort! It's easy to buy because it's over the counter at literally every store/drugstore. It's super affordable and is safe to take. I always have this on hand for any type of mineable pain I may encounter through out my days.

Either a staple in my household, and we cannot live without a bottle of Tylenol around. They’re on the smaller side and easy to swallow, and don’t leave a strong  taste in the mouth. Tylenol is easy to find, as most grocery stores carry it. It’s a great pain reliever and fever reducer.

Best pain reliever on the market that can sold over the counter. taking to 500mg works perfectly and any aches are gone. These I keep on hand at home and are good to keep around the house for any cramps or headaches. Totally 5 stars for me. Packaging is minimal for travel as well.

I have used Tylenol for pain relief before when being on my period.  I usually get extremely bad cramps and a lot of pain relievers do not always help but I remember Tylenol working for me after just only taking one tablet.  The pain seemed to have gone away about 30 minutes after.

I suffer from back and knee pain and of course I get head aches too, so my forever go to is Tylenol xtra strength. It's very affective and quick to the swallow. Within 15 minutes the relief is noticeable. I recommend Tylenol xtra strength to anyone who just needs pain relief.
