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
This is a no brainer to keep in your medicine cabinet. Between injuries, aches and pains, and fevers. It really does it all. It works for four hours and takes the edge off. I always keep this on hand just in case.
I get really bad migraines, and while these won't help with that pain, they do help when I get a minor headache. They also help with any other mild aches or pains.
Tylenol is much milder on my body than ibuprofen. I've been following the Autoimmune Protocol & ibuprofen is on the restricted list, so I've rediscovered that Tylenol is a great alternative for any aches or pains.
I always reach for Tylenol when I have pain or a headache. It gets the job done. I usually buy it in bulk at SAMs Club because it's great to have around the house.
It helps me a lot to relieve my headaches and I always keep it with me in my purse. I've learned to take my Tylenol as soon as I feel the pain starting them I can control easily the level of pain and discomfort.
who doesnt have Tylenol as a go to for minor pain relief or fevers.it gets the job done even though sometimes you wished it worked faster but over all I love it.
These are great for travel and or to carry in your purse. You never know when a headache will strike so you have to be prepared with some Tylenol extra strength.
These are great on the go!! I keep one in my car and one in my purse. It's so much easier to travel with this size than to carry around a bottle with 100+ pills.
I only use this product when I'm in any type of pain. I always buy over the counter. Very much affordable only will cost u a couple dollars. I use it the most so I really don't know how other pain relievers are.
Tylenol is my go to for aches , pains , and headaches. I typically don't like using medicine but this works quick and doesn't make my stomach sick from using it.
