I use only Tylenol. Mostly because I can't use anything else. I am a kidney transplant patient. I prefer Advil, but Tylenol takes the edge off and works ok.

These work great for any type of pain. If I have done a very vigorous workout routine I take one of these right after and I don't get as sore. Very effective.

Takes at least an hour for the pain to start easing up. The pill starts melting in your mouth before you can even swallow which leaves a horrible after taste.
