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
In my home, we keep a steady supply of Tylenol for our aches and pains. I have chronic migraines, and sometimes the only solution is Tylenol. It is much more affordable that most alternatives and I will definitely continue to keep Tylenol stocked in my home.
Awww Tylenol, you can't go wrong with Tylenol. Tylenol is a stable in my home, it helps with just about everything from head to toe. But I don't have to explain, you have to be living under a rock, if you never tried Tylenol. But Tylenol is fast acting and really helps with pain, helps make your head clear, helps with body pains, and fevers, and many other ailments.
i don´t really see the different between this product and a not brand product like regular acetaminophen. its more expensive and for me it´s the same as other pain relievers, plus i dont really have strong muscle pain i used this product because it was a gift.
I have severe arthritis in my ankles and occasionally I will take Tylenol extra strength. It works well for that although some pain still always lingers when I take this for my headaches on the other hand, I feel good fairly quickly. My go to for headaches
Sincer it comes in a big package, it supplied the whole family for quite a long time. It works really well and quickly relieved my headache within half an hour. The tylenol keeps my pain under control and it is long lasting so I sleep all through the night.
Works great with my pain I usually get lower back pain and it was effective! It worked at a convenient store is where I got them at! I say it works about the same as alternative and I was satisfied over all!
Tylenol is such an awesome pain relieving medication. I'm allergic to Aspirin and Ibuprofen, so Tylenol is pretty much all I can take and it works perfectly. I completely recommend Tylenol to others as long as they don't have an allergy to it as well.
Love Tylenol. I'll pretty much will take this medicine for any pain. Especially menstrual cramps. It works wonders. Will have the pain stop in at least 1hour. I would recommend this product over others just because the effects are faster in my opinion
I would only buy this specific Tylenol if there were no more on the shelf. I hate how long the pill is and feels like it catches in my throat! Other than that takes about 2 hours or so for me to feel like it works!
I started using Tylenol extra strength when i was pregnant and would get the occasional headache. I still use it now because it's safe while breastfeeding. It doesn't get rid of my pain like ibuprofen does but it also doesn't damage my kidnies like ibuprofen does either. Not the most effective pain reliever for me but its the safest option for my family.
