This is one of the few over the counter pain meds that actually work for me. I suffer from chronic migraines and have back and shoulder issues and this is what helps me get through the day.

This is my go to to relieve any pain I have. This reduces fevers and reduces inflammation. It's very effective. I always use Tylenol extra strength. I buy it at CVS, Walgreens, or Rite Aid.

These tablets stay in the glove box of my car for when I need them. They are affordable and work very quickly. These definitely met my expectations and will purchase again in the future.

I have stomach issues so Tylonel is all I can take. Easy on the stomach yet it works well for me. Some people don’t think it does much but it does for me. Decent price and will buy again.

Works well. You have to take every 4-6 hours so you have to keep taking them but they do the trick usually. I've kinda built up a tolerance for them so I dont use it as much as I used to

I use Tylenol Extra Strength for aches, pains with great relief! I have always and will always use Tylenol extra strength for headaches, muscle aches, sprains, etc. I am not a fan of any narcotic pain relievers and find that Tylenol always works for me.

I only use this when I’m really sick and I need it for break through pain because I can’t take more ibuprofen. Just by itself it doesn’t seem to last very long or reliev ALL of the pain

We keep Tylenol in the house mainly for when my 8 year old has a headache so I can break one in half for her. I also took it when I was pregnant and couldn't take anything else. It is good as a fever reducer, but does not touch my aches/pains/headaches typically.
