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 have found that when I have a headache, Tylenol Extra Strength is more effective than anything else that I have tried. I don't like taking medicine if I can help it, so I only take it when I need it. I always have this product at home & in my purse.
Since I had my son I can't take anything other than tylenol because im breast feeding. This for me doesn't do the job. I have to take 4 and drink coffee. Just to take the edge off.
Tylenol is my go to pain reliever for headaches. I don't like taking pills and try to tough it out when I can but I trust Tylenol the most for the occasional time I need pain relief
I had a stomach surgery that prevents me from taking NSAIDs, so Tylenol is my go-to for pain control. It works well for combating headaches, fevers and menstrual cramps. I love it!
This is my go to pain reliever medication. It helps with cramps, headaches, back pain, and more. I can take it while breastfeeding without being worried. I would highly recommend this product.
It works good on fever or muscle pain. I like the travel size of this product. It fits so easy in my purse. I don't really like caplets but they are effective. I would purchase again.
Advil and ibuprofen really irritate my stomach especially when I don't eat much with the medication. Tylenol really does not irritate my stomach and actually works to relieve pain!
Well Tylenol is my #1 for every type of pain I get , for those who are allergic to NSAID like I am , this is the best thing we can drink for all types of pain but believe it or not it would take pain away if you drink about 3 lol but so worth it
These guys are a mainstay in my medicine cabinet. Take two for any pain or a fever and you will feel better in 20 mins or so. Plus they help with inflammation and are easy to swallow
These are great pills. I think they work as well as Advil. I like them because they are an alternate pill if you don't want to get Advil. I think it is effective.
