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 is one the best pain relievers. When you have any types of pains, it's one of the fastest working relievers there is. I take this and ibuprofen and it works wonders.
This has been my go to pain and headache reliever for years. It does a great job at making my head pains less intense and has never caused any upset stomach issues like some other pain relievers.
I get bad back and head aches and Tylenol is good for helping both when i don't have a specific type of pain pill. It works pretty well and lasts for a decent time but i wish they lasted longer
Yes! As someone who suffers from frequent headaches, this is really a life saver! It is fast acting, and does not make me feel nauseous or funny whatsoever. I've been using it for the longest time!!!
I take these acetaminophen pills whenever I am traveling and always carry a few of the packets in my purse. They help with any kind of headaches or fever or pain that I'm experiencing.
Tylenol is great for me. It's very effective. I have a sensitive stomach. I love that I can take this on days that I don't feel like I can eat. It doesn't make me sick. I recommend to everyone
These pills are effective but for only a certain amount of hours and than the pains just comes back. I don't really personally like taking pills myself but these help a bit but they're not the best
Typically when I have a headache I head to my bathroom and take a couple of these bad boys. Soon after my headache will disappear. It seems to help most days where other pain relievers do not.
Tylenol was my go to pain pill for when I have surgery because it doesn't thin my blood (which would make me bleed more) and it does the job of taking away pain. It's affordable and I love it
I know it's weird, but I like the taste of these. (Not that I EAT them, you know what I mean.) they don't taste medicinal on my tongue when I need to take some. Only thing I use for headaches.
