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
Tylenol extra strength is great for relief from headaches or body aches. It works quick and last for several hours. The price is good and very comparable to other brands. I will continue buying thus product.
Doesn't work as well as Advil, but it gets the job done. It helps to reduce fever, but as far as taking aches and pain away, it's very slow. It's at a good price point though. Would rather Advil!!!!!!!!
I don’t use this too often because any issue can be taken care of with ibuprofen or excedrin. If you need aspirin this would be the one of choice though. Just because of the familiarity of the name brand.
Once again, not much to add other than these are effective. I usually only take them when pain is severe and I am alternating between taking Advil or another ibuprofen product. Price point is competitive.
These are a lifesaver after I've had a night out drinking more than anyone ever should. They help cure my aching hangover sooner than I could ever hope for. Amen for these bad boys. Couldn't live without them.
Works for me whenever my body wants to cooperate. Bought it at Walgreens and was priced at what you could expect for a Walgreens. It works as described and only takes a half hour or so to kick in for me.
This is the best headache medicine I have ever taken. It always meets my expectations and it’s very effective. I am satisfied with this product because the value and it’s affordable. I would keep purchasing !
I had to switch to Tylenol when I was pregnant with my daughter and have been using it ever since. It helps with my aches and pains and helps with my headaches and pretty quick too! I love using Tylenol!
definitely good for after pregnancy and back pain allllll that ! definitely recommend this i mean who doesn't like these pain relievers great value and not pricey at all i would definitely buy this product again
Works well. Caplets are easy to swallow and I had pain relief within 30 minutes. I will buy this again as it works quickly and efficiently. Very cost friendly and works well. Gentile on stomach. Love it!
