- "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
It works at helping relieve pain and it's also the only thing that I could take while pregnant and now breastfeeding so I depend on this when I'm in pain
I take the regular strength ones when I have head aches, it really helps me. I prefer this brand over any other brand. They are also stronger then Advil
For some reason tylenol is my go to pain reliever. Cures my aches and pains for hours and hours and totally makes me feel better and ready for anythinf.
This is my go to pain reliever. I take it when my body hurts or when I am feeling under the weather. I have never had anything but a positive experience.
Tried this for menstrual cramps once. I thought it didn't work but after a while it's started functioning. I even forgot I had cramps in the first place
Tylenol Extra Strength is a staple in my household. We use it for fevers, aches, hangovers, basically anything. Generally I buy it at the grocery store.
I'm allergic to aspirin so I have no choice but to take Tylenol. But when I'm hurting and it's not time for my pain meds I will take Tylenol in between.
I love Tylenol, I don't take medicine often for headaches but if I have a really bad one, I always use Tylenol and within minutes I feel like it's gone.
I keep a few of these in my purse, pain cramps are no joke and can go from 0 to 100 in 10 seconds flat. These painkillers help without making you groggy
This helps relieve almost any pain in having within about an hour of taking it. I always have this stocked in my medicine cabinet. Packaging is standard.
