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 take this and it always seems to help. But I try not to take it if I can help it. But it does work for my headaches. Always makes me sleepy though and it’s very affordable I would recommend it to others
Tylenol is effective after almost one hour, the reason that I did not gave five stars but it definitely works especially for headache and when you are not felling very well, Tylenol is also excellent if you drunk a lot last night and did not wake up well haha.
Extra strength or none at all. Along with Acetaminophen, this works like a champ. I usually get mine at Walmart, but any drugstore type store sells it. Tylenol never fails. I was relieved of my pain in about an hour (normal). I have bought Tylenol when needed since I turned 18.
I took Tylenol while I was pregnant and it worked fantastic. I was skeptical at first because I didn’t think it would take my headache away but it definitely did. It compares to others and it isn’t too expensive! I would buy it again and I would recommend to all of my friends!
When I or my husband have fevers, it is Tylenol that we reach for. It is effective in reducing fever and safe to take multiple doses when following the directions. Can always be found at any drugstore or grocery store. We usually always have a bottle on hand in our house.
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.
I keep a bottle of this in my purse at all times! Perfect for on the go or traveling and I can always count on this to take my headache or pain away. This is my holy grail product and I really don't go anywhere without it. My family is a huge fan of tylenol.
When I'm struggling with a horrible headache extra strength tylenol is always my go to. It works fast and helps better than anything else I've tried before. It's always convenient to find at your local grocery store and it isn't super expensive. I definitely recommend.
Tylenol is my go to pill after having cramps. I take this every where I go. I like the tube ones. Easy to carry and have in my purse. Tylenol just like advil helps my pain go away
Well I'm allergic to other brands I take Tylenol for my headaches and it work wonder and it won't put me to sleep !!! Wich is a plus!!! Work fast and give a relieve after 10 minutes of taken it !!!
