- "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
This product helps With headaches as expected and pain. It is more effective than other products . This met my expectations on how good it would work. I bought this at family dollar store. I am pretty satisfied with this Tylenol and i would recommend it.
I have nerve pain and a lot of times i have to take two of these guys and two naproxen they help some but not much however for head aches and all that i think they work great
I have always been an avid Tylonel user! Any sort of pain or sickness, I rely on the same Extra strength Tylonel pills. It works quickly and very good! I would recommend this product to anyone dealing with any sort of pain or illness. Tylenol® Extra Strength Caplets for Adults
its very effective, I get relief in under 10 minutes, but it could be different for others. its very highly recommended by me, if you need a good pain reliever. it met all of my expectations and beyond. definitely would buy it again and again and again!
About as great as any OTC medication can be. A little pricey compared to generic brands where you can get the same thing. Does exactly what it should do, though. Overall am satisfied.
I use Tylenol extra strength for any every day aches & pains as well as menstrual cramps. I find it to be very effective and when necessary will rotate it with ibuprofen.
In my opinion Tylenol extra strength is one of the best painkillers over the counter. I use them for my menstrual pains and for headaches. I suggest you use them carefully and wisely. I could've sworn back in the day they have a higher dosage for extra strength but they still work so no worries.
I use this product every time I have an headache, backache and my monthly. It really doesn’t compare. I usually take Advil but it does not work. I’m always still in pain. I bought it at Walmart of course, and overall I’m satisfied with this product.
I've been using this to help out with my migraines since I was in elementary school and this makes them so much more bearable. I also reach for this when I have just an ordinary headache and I find that it relieves my symptoms within an hour or two.
Tylenol is a great product and works quickly for strains, sprains, fevers, headaches and the list goes on. I’ve always trusted Tylenol to help with any issues. I trusted it when my kids were babies to help reduce fevers and ease the ache of teething.
