The same packets are great when you are on the go or at work when you do not want to have a lot on you. Would recommend to put in purses or cars for on the go purposes.

I often don’t take pills when I have pains. But the rare times I do I tend to go for this brand. It gets the job done if I have a headache or any other minor pain.

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.

For quick pain relief Tylenol can't be beat! I have bad reactions to a lot of the NSAIDS on the market today but Tylenol does not do anything to me but ease my pain.
