Tylenol is amazing for pains either by itself or added to something else. If I have a headache I take 1 of these and 1 Excedrin instead of the 2 Excedrin because it makes me jumpy. the combination of the 2 works well for me

Tylenol is a good pain reliever if your symptoms match it’s description. I tend to take ibuprofen, but I would take Tylenol if it made sense for whatever I was feeling at the time. However, I might also opt for the generic.

I always use Tylenol when I'm in pain. It doesn't ever make my stomach upset like other brands. It also is very affordable and can be found pretty much any store or gas station. I definitely recommend this product to everyone.

I have used Tylenol for the last 5 years because I started having kids and I breastfed. This is the only thing I was able to take while doing so. It works fairly fast. Not too big of a pill so it's not very hard to swollow.

Worked just as expected. Always keep this product on hand. Other products don't work as effectively as this one. I usually get mine at Walmart. Always a good price. Always tell my people about it. Will keep getting it.

Tylenol helps me when I get headaches in the back of my head. They hurt so bad so the doctor recommended Tylenol and so far it has been working well! Doesn't take too long to work & is very well for anyone who has headaches

Tylenol Extra Strength caplets seem to be effective, whether I need them for a headache, backache, or other pain. Just about every time I need to purchase Tylenol, it is on sale. I usually purchase it from Walgreens or CVS.
