- "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
Always use Tylenol extra strength after a hard workout ... takes away any aches and pains I have ... it's worth the money .... always get my products at Walmart
Love this it works for everything so far. Takes the pain away in just a matter of minutes. Definitely recommend this for adults and the infant one is also good!
Tylenol is the only thing I could takd during both of my pregnancies. It helped for a short time I don' t like taking meds anyways. I hardly ever take anything.
This Tylenol extra strength was a life saver when I was pregnant because it was the only thing that I was allowed to take when I had a cold. It works very well.
Tylenol is great to relieve pain. My boyfriend uses it more than I do since its a bit to strong for me. And he says it gets rid of his headaches so that's good.
I loved until I realized even with just taking one my period started going for 2 straight weeks even though it’s only come for a day or two the past few months.
I absolutely love Tylenol extra strength! It gives great relief quick and for a long time! I'm thankful for the price and how easy i can get to it! It's great!!
I have to take Tylenol because of the medicine I am. It helps with some of the pain, but it doesn't completely get rid or it. Sometimes taking it makes me sick.
Great for fever and headaches. Very popular brand and I always have it arpund the house. Also effective for simple muscle or joint aches. Great price and value.
Best to have when you have any pain or fever. Works fasts and you feel better in no time. I usually go with extra strength and just take 1 and it does the work.
