It gets the job done in relieving my aches and pains. The only complaint I have is the time it takes for it to start working. It takes well over an hour for it to kick in.

Takes away my pain. Can find in most big retailers, 99 cent store, dollar tree, gas stations. Although it works the same as other generic brands I always lean towards this one. Works well.

This works like no other medicine I take it immediately when I have a toothache or headache and it does take about 30 mins to work but it removes the pain to a great extent

I have always been a Tylenol fan, especially now that I cannot take NSAIDs. It's gentle on the stomach and easy to swallow. It works for body aches, headaches and fevers.

I wasn't a big believer in Tylenol at first but recently I started to use the extra strength formulation and it works wonders for pain- especially from my monthly friend.
