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.

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.
