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 medicine I will ever buy for pain. Any kind of pain. These are literally my go to's. I keep one and home, one at work, and one in my car.
I do use these with my severe headaches and they do help every time as long as I calm down for a second and I'm not continuously running around.
I reach for these when I have a headache when my back is killing. My Dr want me to take these over any other ones because of my medical history
Tylenol has never really helped with headaches. Unfortunately, when it finally starts to kick in it’s like I️ have another headache starting. /:
I could only take Tylenol when I was pregnant as I always had a headache or back pain. Taking these would knock the pain right out. I love these.
These tylenol seem to work the best for me. They have the longest effect throughout the day compared to other things I have taken for a headache.
Tylenol seems to be the only thing that helps me when I get my migraines. This extra strength Tylenol really kicks in fast and gets the job done!
I think its great, it makes the pain melt away pretty fast, its pretty much the only pain reliever I take just because its tried and true for me.
Tylenol is our go to product for your general aches and pains, and headache relief. It works the first time you use it, and doesn't let you down.
This is the only pain relief product I like to use. Advil just doesn't cut it for me. I also use this when I have head aches and it always helps.
