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
This particular tylenol got me through my hemorrhoidectomy pain! I dont wish that pain on anyone but tylenol extra strength got me through it since i could not breastfeed with the pain killers the doctor prescribed to me..... so tylenol it was since i cant drink advil or ibuprofen.
I love the option of having the little travel size bottle instead of carrying around the whole bottle. Several times while carrying the whole bottle in my purse the cap has popped off and I have the whole bottle spilled into my purse. I like being able to just carry around what I need and not having to take the whole bottle from the house or worry about putting the bottle back. I typically carry a travel size in my purse and it's always there when the pain hits!
This is the only pain reliever that is safe to use when pregnant and breast feeding so i have been using this for a long. It helps with any kind of ache and pain or cramp and helps headaches too. But sometimes when i have a really bad headache i have to take it more than once a day. Like, ill take it cause my headache is killing me and it wont help at all so im like miserable, counting down the minutes until i can take more. That sucks. But that doesnt happen often.
I've suffered from headaches and migraines ever since I can remember. For the longest time I used other medications that only caused more stomach issues for me, but Extra Strength kicks in quickly and takes care of the issue quickly without causing further issues. I've used other pain relievers but none of them work as well or as thoroughly as Extra Strength Tylenol so I never go anywhere without it. Tylenol® Extra Strength Caplets for Adults
For the most part, Tylenol has never let me down. I use it for essentially everything, from headaches to menstrual cramps and everything in between. You can find it anywhere, even in gas stations and convenience stores in campus, so it is easily accessible. I take the recommended dose and it usually does the trick within the hour. I do wish it worked just a little quicker sometimes.
Being a college student comes with an insane amount of spending time on the computer, reading textbooks and endless handouts; so during those late night study hours I resort to Tylenol to ease the excruciating headaches and reduce the sensitivity to light on my eyes. It's my ultimate go-to pain reliever for everything.
When I have really bad headaches I take two of these and lay down and I start to feel relieve after just a few minutes I love Tylenol. I've gotten use to taking these for migraines and headaches while pregnant
Always in my purse! My doctor actually recommends I take two Tylenol Extra Strength before my chemotherapy infusions, that is how safe, and effective it is! I also have migraines on a regular basis, and Tylenol is one of the only thing that helps, and still allows me to function normally.
This is my favorite pain reliever. I always keep a bottle in my bag especially when I'm going to work. I always get a headache or backache and this always works.
Works fairly well on my migraines. I am thankful to have this so that I don't have to take a prescription pill every time I have a migraine. It works very effectively on regular headaches, and it is pretty effective on mild migraines. I totally attribute that to the "extra strength" in this specific brand because it seems to be the only one that helps with migraines!
