Tylenol doesn't work for.me. even with the smallest pain it does nothing for me. I've never been a Tylenol taker so it's not a tolerant I've built up.

Works good. Can't take any thing else besides that I'm on blood thinners and I have PFOclosure done and had a stroke and heart attack and blood clots.

It takes the pain away but it takes an while to work.
It doesn't upset my stomach and I only take one every few hours if I have mild to moderate pain.

These works great for aches and pains, cramps, and headaches.  Advil and other pain relievers have never worked for me, but this does a great job.
