Very reliable medication that I like to keep on hand for whenever I have headaches or cramps. It's not as quick as Advil but it also does the trick

Who doesn't love Tylenol. Works good. Fast and effective and affordable. Rather use name brand than generics cause I know the name makes it better.

I like to alternate Tylenol and Advil when I’m sick. Tylenol works but i usually go for Advil because the pills are smaller and easier to swallow.

This helps my headaches a lot. I get them if I do not drink enough water. And take them. Right away I feel relief on top of drinking lots of water.
