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
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.
I like using this dispenser, ecause it fits perfectly in my purse, so when I get headaches or muscle aches I can reach for my tylenol. And with in 10 minutes my aches and pains are gone.
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.
This were my life saver when i was pregnate this is the only thing i could ever take so they are good and also pregnancy friendly but remember its better not to drink medicine when pregnant
