They work! I usually only try to use these if I have cramps or if I have a fever. I’m not one to use pain killers a lot, and it works for what I need!

I suffer migraines. This product helps to release the symptoms a little to be able to go throughout the day without feeling nauseous, weak and in pain

Tylenol is one of the best pain relievers. I take this over any other product. It gets rid of my head aches so quick it definitely met my expectations.

I take two for a headache. If it's mild it usually works within 15-20 minutes. If it's severe it may reduced the pain, but not take it away completely.

I always have this in my medicine cabinet. It's great for pain relief and for colds. It's not too expensive especially if you buy it in the bulk sizes.

Tylenol is another great medication for pain. It is also good to reduce fever, as well. But there are other great remedies for pain, like heating pads.
