Easy to throw in your purse and have when you need it. Tylenol is the only kind of OTC pain relief I can use, and this convenient travel size doesn't take up much room, and is easily refillable

Tylenol is great for headaches, muscle pain, any type of pain really. I use it for those occasional headaches I have. I would recommend these to friends and family if they needed pain relief for sure.

I've been using this for my migraines as well as back pain regularly and it helps for a few hours.. I can't find much else that works. I use this at least once a week and will repurchase this!

Works quickly and is fast acting. Also if is a lot safer to use than ibuprofen. I prefer using extra strength for migraines and cramps although regular Tylenol works great for other pains.

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.

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.

I am an active person, and as I have aged, I've discovered new aches and pains.  Tylenol Extra Strength tablets are fast acting and help me get back on the road again quickly.

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
