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.
