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 always make sure I have one of these in my bad never know when I will need one. I get common headaches sometimes and also incase someone else might need one.
This is truly a great value from an all around trusted household name brand. Affordable and sure to get the job done. Great for at home or on the go use.
Pretty good a little expensive, I don't use often only when I have some aches and body pains, but almost always makes me feel better especially when I'm sick.
I can always count on this to make my headaches go away. I also use this for menstrual cramps and backaches. It doesn't take much to help relieve my symptoms.
I usually try not to take pills and either wait out pain or try some sort of natural approach but when I have a headache or minor pains or cramps I take this.
As a person that gets chronic headaches, I have turned to Tylenol time and time again. The extra strength caps have saved the day more times than I can count.
I have a bad knee and get headaches often, so when I feel either coming on I'll pop 2 of these and usually within 10 minutes I can feel the pain melting away.
Good product for when you're just hurting but don't have swelling. Also easier on the kidneys but downside is it hits the liver so drink lots of water with it
I like using Tylenol extra strength when I have a migraine or body aches (due to fibromyalgia). I lay down for an hour or two and when I wake up I feel better.
Estas pastillas aveces no me prueban mucho, si las uso para un dolor de cabeza tarda bastante en hacerme el efecto para que me pueda quitar el dolor de cabeza
