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
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!
Anytime I get a migraine I take a couple of Tylenol and drink a Gatorade or soda and it is usually gone in a couple hours. It is also my go to for aches and pains
Always have this product in my purse with me for random headaches, period cramps, sore/pulled muscles, etc. I find it to be what works best for me when I'm having any sort of pain and cramping. I would recommend.
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.
Love these there the only pain killer i will take for anything they work great and very effective prices are ok not to bad i would take this over any other pain med
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.
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.
I have frequent headaches due to stress and this helps quickly and efficiently. This is a rather affordable product and I'd definitely recommend someone using it.
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.
These are nice to have to throw in your purse and easy to access in case you need quickly. Works but have to take every 4 hours in order to keep the pain minimal
