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
Tylenol is usually my go to when I have a bad headache. I do experience relief after taking it. I think that it does just as good of a job as Advil does for my headaches. I take about 2 every 6 hours; I way about 108 pounds and that always seems to work for me.
I love all brands of Tylenol. It always seems to make my aches and pains go away from cramps or sore muscles. I think that this product is effective and worth the price for its value. I usually buy this at the grocery store and I recommend it to others.
Great for on the go, never worried about them spilling or having to pour a bunch out to get just the right number you should take. They definitely help with the pain, but I don't think they are anything special. They do their job, though, so I cannot complain.
I use Tylenol for all of my pain. I use it when I have a headache, when I have cramps, muscle pain or any other kind of soreness requiring medication. It’s my go-to and I always carry it with me in my purse. It’s easy to find, great quality, and affordable!
This is simply your basic pain reliever that doesn’t cost much and gets you through all your aches and pains. They are easy to take and don’t have much of a horrible taste.
Tylenol is my go to pain reliever. I get tension headaches frequently and this always seems to help. It helps me fall asleep fast as well despite the lack of sleep aid in it. (It doesn't make me drowsy though) The pills are not too big and there is no taste.
In my opinion this doesn’t work as good as a lot of other pain medicines , i usually buy from Walmart or 7-11 i use it when i don’t have any other medicines i wouldn’t recommend to someone or buy again i don’t think
Who doesn't use tyenol? It's a great pain reliever, it helps a lot for pain and aches, not good for menstruals but other than that it does relieve pain, it's been bought continuously in my home and we will continue to buy it. I would and have recommended this product to others.
Tylenol extra strength does the job for me most of the time. Much better than the regular Tylenol. But It tends to make me a little sleepy even though it’s not supposed to.
I work with toddlers so I am constantly getting sick from baby germs. By the time I get home from work I'm running a 100+ fever. I take two of the tylenol extra strength and it brings my fever back down low or gets rid of it. If I have a fever I would recommend taking two tabs of tylenol extra strength.
