I've been using Tylenol for years, it's a brand that I trust and I'm hesitant to use anything else. It always helps with my headaches and pain.

This works great for fevers and body aches. I like advil better for anti inflammatory purposes but i do like having tylenol as an alternative.

Tylenol pretty much cures any ache or pain that I might have. It is my go-to! I usually pair it with 800mg of ibuprofen and continue on my day.
