- "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’m usually not into taking any type of medicine but when I really can’t take the pain I do take Tylenol and it does help, so I would say it does it’s job.
I do take on occasion if I have to pick something up while i'm on the go. They work just fine but I do end up having to take them more than once in a day.
The only product I've ever used for my migraines that actually works without having to lay down and wait no matter what you're doing it still helps w pain
I have headaches all most ever day. The meds I was given by my doctor sometimes helps. But if it don't I use this stuff. It is kind of price but worth it.
It's good that u can mix this with alive especially when you have a very bad headache. I have TMJ and this helps the pain and alive helps the inflammation
I can't say enough good things about this product. It's one of my go to products. I have nothing but good things to say and I think others should try this.
Tentacle for this product because I know it works faster than an Advil does. It really does a good job helping with a headache within less than 30 minutes.
Since being pregnant and then being on blood thinners I was only able to take Tylenol, but it is the only thing that works for me now. Cheap. And it works.
Tylenol is my go to pain reliever. I don't have to worry about eating before hand. It's fast acting and not too expensive. I usually get mine at Walgreens.
These are my jam for a headache, cramps, whatever ails you. I hear they are bad on your lover but my coworker eats them like candy and she's alive so......
