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
The only thing I could take while pregnant/breastfeeding and it did not disappoint! It's one thing I always keep on hand for headaches and colds..
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.
I typically do not use tylenol as it does not help my pain as well as other products. It occasionally works for headaches but not much else for me
I have always used Tylenol for every time I have a ache or pain and it helps but be careful how much you take because your body can get used to it
I know these have worked before so I have no issue giving this item 5 stars. It would relieve the pain just enough for me to function much easier.
Whenever I have an intensive back pain that leads me to having a horrible head ache, I always go with Tylenol. It’s very effective and affordable.
It works really fast that's all I could ask for. It's affordable. And I like how the bottle would be hard for kids to open (when it's in a bottle)
Great product sometimes I can Cath them on sale 2 bottles for 5$ they got good strong milligrams and I take 4 with in 30min u can tell a difference
My go to for pain reliever. Tylenol always does the job. I am not allowed to take other pain relievers and I never have a problem where I have to.
Pain reliever--it does in fact relieve pain! Tylenol is my preferred pain reliever for adults and children. Affordable, readily available. Win-win
