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
I like Tylenol because unfortunately I can't take other pain medicines since I'm allergic to many. Tylenol is perfect and this little packets are ideal to carry around in my purse or when I go out anywhere.
On the go Tylenol extra strength is my go to. It is a total life saver and fits nicely into my pocket or purse. I love Tylenol because it is long lasting and safe to take when pregnant (as I am currently).
The best medicine for headaches & migraines. I usually take two tablets for my headache to go away. I'm low on iron so I'm always nauseous and this does the works! I'm satisfied because I always end up buying it again.
These are great for any type of pain you may be having. I use these a lot for headaches and when my body is sore from working out. They're great and get the job done for a good price. I definitely recommend
Definitely a relief when I was pregnant! This was the only pain medicine that I could take. It met my expectations and was very effective. I would recommend to anyone whose pregnant. I am overall satisfied
I faithfully use Tylenol Extra Strength 500 mg Caplets every single day. I purchase the large bottle, containing 325 Caplets at Sam's Warehouse. They relieve the pain in my joints and I a, completely satisfied.
Pretty good value for how many is in the package. Usually always takes away all my headaches. Takes a little longer to feel relief compared to excederin but it still does the job! I would recommend to others
Great fever reducer! Helped me with pains related to my pregnancy. Tylenol is safe, in appropriate doses, for pregnant women. I only use as needed, following the directions on the packaging. Would recommend.
After having a c section I used these and they worked great, didn't even have to use the pills they gave me at the hospital. I was able to stay awake instead of being tired and they took the pain right way.
This is always my go-to pain reliever. Wether it's from menstrual cramps to migraines, Tylenol never fails to relieve the pain. I always keep some around the apartment and my bag.
