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
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.
Love this product. Every headache, backache, joint pain, et. Is eased. It has a good value for a good price. I have bought at numerous locations and am never disappointed.
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.
I usually take this wh we n I'm sick it helps me sleep. It works really good. And it doesn't take to long to kick in. I usually buy it at a Wal-Mart or a store like that.
This container is perfect for on the go. I stick them in my purse and have them for whenever I need them. Tylenol is good for aches and pains and is affordable. Satisfying overall.
I have chronic migraines and whenever one manifests I always find myself reaching for this Tylenol . It was works so well and so quickly. I always have to keep some on me
I think these work good when you have a small ache! I like to take after a good work shift or walking. Sometimes my legs/ankles will hurt and this has them feeling great
