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
Taking this is sometimes the only thing standing between me and jail time. Whenever a pounding headache sets in, intake this and it helps quickly. You can find this most anywhere. Definitely recommend. Have bought and will continue to buy more
Tylenol has always worked best for me over anything else that’s OTC. You can get this at any local gas station , Walmart, or grocery store . It works faster in my opinion than alternatives. I always recommend Tylenol because it’s fast acting.
Tylenol is dependable and safe. When I have a headache that I can't shake, it's always been effective at knocking it down a few notches. Price is reasonable, and does the job. I would prefer Tylenol over all of the other leading pain reducers.
These are okay for menstrual cramps as well but doesn't kick in as fast as other pain relievers but it got the job done and was effective. As for migraines, these aren't as good versus other pain relievers, but I would recommend for others.
this always does the trick, whether it is a headache a tooth ache, this always works for me, and it doesn't make me feel drowsy or sick to my stomach or anything of that sort, i recommend these compared to the other generic brands ! and they're pretty affordable !
Tambien lo tomo, me ayuda hasta con los dolores de vientre cuando ando en mis dias,en mi casa tengo,en mi trabajo tambien hay en los primeros auxilios,lo compro en cvs o walmart, alli lo consigues, si lo recomiendo con ojos cerrados, muy bueno
Tylenol works great. If looking for off-brand, it is called acedomenophin. I buy this from any drug store or walmart. It is fairly expensive, as is all medication. It is effective and relieves lots of symptoms. I am satisfied with the product.
Easily the best over the counter product to help numb moderate level pains when needed. It pretty much meets all my expectations and never fails to disappoint me when I do decide to use it! Whenever a friend has pain, I recommend it to them!
I feel like you can't really go wrong with Tylenol. It's a great thing to always have around. I keep a bottle in my car, in my purse, and of course in my house. It's a pharmaceutical brand I trust, which comes in handy when overseas! It is sold internationally.
Great for when I have a headache or some other pain. It also works for me when I'm sick with a cold. I think the price is affordable and it meets its expectations. I recommend this product to others. It's also easy to find in stores especially places such as CVS Pharmacy.
