These are good because they do start working quickly (under an hour). honestly that’s all I really look for when taking pain reliever is how fast they’re going to work

I don't think these are worth the money. They do work better than the regular strength but I would rather take Advil or alieve. They are better for you and last longer

I really don't drink over the counter medication. But when I'm dying of the pain i do drink this one. Especially when i was pregnant and couldn't drink anything else.

The extra strength is significantly better than just your general Tylonel. I would use this because you really only have to take one, and they are very fast acting.
