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
I can always rely on Tylenol Extra Strength to help fight my aches and pains. I was experiencing frequent headaches at the beginning of my current pregnancy and with this product at my disposal I was still able to complete daily life tasks & be an attentive mother to my toddler!
I like to use the extra strength Tylenol I suffer from endometriosis so before my period and during my period when I’m in a lot of pain this is my go to. It meets my mind xpectations for pain management . Of course I’d buy it again because I rely on it to get me threw the pain.
I am allergic to most painkillers and Tylenol is the only kind I can take. It Is a lifesaver when I am in pain! I usually get it at Walmart or Walgreens. I would really like to see Tylenol come out with a menstral pain pill! I am definitely going to keep buying this product!
I am 26 weeks pregnant and can only really take Tylenol. So I went and bought this because I was having a horrible headache that would not go away. Within minutes of taking this my headache was gone. I would recommend this especially to those who need instant relief.
Tylenol is one of my favorite pain relievers. In November of 2017 I fell down a flight of marble stairs at school and got a concussion and well as tore several muscles in my back. My back and neck were black and blue for weeks, but Tylenol is what got me through it.
Tylenol is my go to pain medication for headaches, cramps, stomach pain, body aches and anything in between. It is super effective especially for any type of period pain even when midol isn’t. Tylenol is definitely a reliable brand which I will definitely buy again.
It doesn't work as well for me as ibueprofon does but my doctor recommended me to take this because i only have 1 kidney and this is not excreted through the kidney's like ibueprofon.
Honestly I use to have huge migraines, I have a specific medication to use when I get them, but I found out that as soon as I feel a headache coming I take two of these and it will go away in the matter of 10 minutes. I haven’t had a migraine in 2 years every since I found out this little trick but it only works with this brand. Other brands I’ve used to try to do the same thing with it won’t work and I ended up having to use my medication.
I use these mostly when I have a headache or during my menstrual cycle (sorry for the tmi) and they work beautifully. Theyre cheap and can even be found in the dollar store, they activate quickly and they do exactly what it they and relieves the pain in almost an instant.
