- "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
After doing my fitness activities most of the times I end up with some sort of pain. I've been trying to take other medicines before but nothing relieves the pain like taylenol extra. I get it every time from my local pharmacy. I'll definetly keep using it.
Tylenol is my go to for aches and pains. It works quickly and effectively. I only use this for my smaller pains, I have medical conditions that create extreme pain and I use prescriptions for that. But for your run of the mill headache or other pains this is a good product.
Definitely the product of choose when it comes to reliving any sort of pain. Headache, muscle pain, I choose Tylenol. This product is definitely worth its price. Although I have tried other pain relievers, I do believe that Tylenol has had the greatest affect for me.
This is a great product. It gets rid of any sudden pain that I feel coming along. I go to the gym a lot and I am very sore usually afterwards and this product really does help me
Tylenol extra strength is amazing for fever and cold. Not expensive at all for the instant effects. Easy to carry and very effective with severe cold and cough. Easily available in any drug store over the counter. Would totally recommend it for cold and cough to friends!
They are the best I have them all the time I haven’t made it headache is the best I love it is there are you so you know I don’t have that much headache but when I do I take a pill and does an amazing job I really recommend this to everyone
Great pain reliever for muscle pains. I get back pains for sitting long hours at office and it works great for it, it is really very effective, eases my pain within 15mins. Buy these at wall greens or amazon. I always keep it handy and recommend to people with bad pain.
Because of a recent surgery this is the only form of pain reliever I am allowed to take. I find it to be very effective for a great period of time. Even when I’m off of my restrictions I do believe I would still purchase this product. It’s effectiveness has a green light from me
These work great from headaches, muscle aches to cramps! I always use these to help relieve pain when I have it. They are expensive due to the name brand but they are worth it.
My go-to when the aches and pains of a cold or fever set in! Tylenol is always a reliable, convenient and easy to find brand that works fast. I feel relief after taking it almost immediately. Got me through my postpartum period after my C-section and through wisdom teeth removal surgery. The champion of pain relief!
