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
Tylenol is a great product and works quickly for strains, sprains, fevers, headaches and the list goes on. I’ve always trusted Tylenol to help with any issues. I trusted it when my kids were babies to help reduce fevers and ease the ache of teething.
This stuff works well especially when I have a headache. I also get pain in my legs, back, and hands...I take two of these and the pain goes away temporary. It last long enough to get some work done. Now it all depends on you body on how fast it will work.
This product works for what it says it does! It exceeded my expectations. One of my favorite products. It's cheaper than a lot of other brands, but still works! I've purchase this at a few different stores. I usually don't have a hard time finding it. Will continue using!
Great product for any pain realife. I suffer from cramps every now and then like any woman and I take Tylenol to help the pain. The product is also affordable and available at any drug store and supermarket. Overall I was saitsified with the product.
They are a little to big for my liking. But other than that they work great. I take them often, maybe twice a week, for headaches. It only takes a matter of minutes for them to start working and I very rarely have to take another dose during the day
I do like to use Tylenol around that time of the month although it's not my first choice in pain reliever. It does however get the job done. I will use it occasionally if someone else has it but I don't necessarily go out and purchase bottles myself.
I picked these up at a convenience store when I had a bad headache and wasn't at home. Tylenol works for me, got rid of my headache quickly and got me back to what I needed to be doing. It's good to know I can count on Tylenol to relieve my headaches!
This is great for over the road when you had a headache or muscle ache but sometimes I have found that this product makes me nauseous after taking it. I would recommend if you have a strong stomach but I would not recommend it you get nauseous easily.
I always buy these because they are easy to take everywhere. I buy my box at our local Sams club. I use this Tylenol because I feel like it easies my headache or body ache faster than any other brand. I always make sure to share if someone needs some at home or work.
This literally solves all problems in regards to pain. Migraines? Boom. Period cramps? Boom (take an extra one to fully get effects for this problem though). General body or skin pain? Boom take a pill.
