I mainly use this medication for an antipyretic but it still gives the body aches a swift kick! I keep a small bottle in my car for those sneaky sinus side effects!

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.

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.

These are to have just in case but are not as effective as other brands are. When I'm a bind we will use these anyways but they do not correct the problem as fast.

I get these really terrible headaches that make my whole face hurt and then it goes down into my shoulders. These tablets knock all the pain out within 30 minutes.

My boyfriend has bad kidneys so he can’t use ibuprofen so we always have Tylenol on hand. I also only use Tylenol for period cramps. Works fast and very effective.

Tylenol is a great product. I have noticed If I have to take it more than a couple of days it's not as effective, but for the occasional headache, it does wonders!

I use these when I get headaches. It works great. Sometimes if i have a bad migraine I will use these with ibuprofen and within a half hour I'm functioning again.
