I use Tylenol because Ibuprofen hurts my stomach. It relieves my pain or headache. I recommend it to anyone. I usually take the highest dose possible.

Tylenol is the only thing that helps my pain right now. Cannot function otherwise. Cannot sleep either. Even prescribed pain meds did not work as well.
