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
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
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.
I prefer Alieve or Ibreprofin to Tylenol. I bought these at CVS and was very affordable, however it doesn't work very well for me. It might for you.
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.
I’m pregnant so i can only take Tylenol and i love it because It helps a lil when i have headaches. Its so effective dude !!!! I buy this at Walmart
Tylenol has been on the market as long as i can remember. Its great for menstrual cramps, headaches, fevers, and body pains. Take 2 and feel better!
I take this for headaches and any aches or pains I might have. I find that it works well for what I need it for and does a good job breaking a fever.
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.
These are great for pain. Rather its menstrual cramps, back ache, or even a headache two of these and within 10 to 20 minutes i feel so much better.
This product works very well and does what it claims to do. These packets are easy to throw in a purse and take on the go in case a headache pops up
