I love carrying this just in case. For every day aches and pains that come with working in a hospital, Tylenol is my saving grace. You can buy it almost anywhere, and it’s always a cheap price. Would recommend to anyone!

I would definitely recommend this product. I am not able to take other pain relievers due to other medications i am currently on. I tried this and it definitely works and lasts quite a while compared to others i’ve tried.

Just my simple go to medication for all around everything. I especially use this when I have cramps or a major headache. I try my best to not take medication but if I really cant handle it then I take tyenol. It has worked very well for me all of these years and I would gladly continue to repurchase.

Whether it’s a fever or a terrible ache, Tylenol extra strength has never let me down. I am a person who doesn’t have time to just deal with headaches so therefore taking this was super helpful and I would buy it again.

I usually use ibuprofen but Tylenol saved me when I got surgery and wasn't able to use ibuprofen. It helped a lot with the pain and made me comfortable during recovery after I wanted to ween off the strong painkillers.
