Tylenol® Extra Strength Caplets for Adults
- "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
Tylenol is the only brand we will use in our house it get the job done. No matter if we have fevers or a headache. The off brands don't seem to help.
As soon as I feel pain, I take two of these. They relieve the pain right away or help make the pain bearable. It helps with headaches and body pains.
These have been tne most effective pain killers/fever reducers for me and my family for years. However, in case of fever it does not last upto 8 hrs.
I am giving this a 3/5. This helps sometimes but then again sometimes it doesn’t. It is affordable. There are many different sizes you can get it in.
For myself, I don't like tylenol. It has never helped me. It doesn't relieve my pains or headaches etc. I'd rather use something that actually works.
Tylenol is a must at our home. It comes in handy for those time in need. So far its been effective and i will krep buying it as long as they make it.
Best product to take for a any pains you may have, I take it religiously and it’s the best out there! I’ve taken this many times and it always helps!
When I feel a headache coming on, I can take 2 of these and they work almost immediately. I make sure I carry some of these on me at all times.
Love having this for on the go! I take this along with some ibuprofen to help ease my jaw pain which can happen anywhere! Will always buy my Tylenol
Extra strength is the way to go when reaching for Tylenol. I can't use NSAIDS like ibuprofen or Aleve so this is a great product for pain and fevers.
