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
Anytime I have an ache or pain I reach for the extra strength Tylenol. It works well to alleviate the aches of pain of my everyday life. I have a very physical job which causes many aches and pains and this works amazingly well for that.
I use Tylenol when I have headaches or cramps. The pain is relieved within ten minutes. The price is affordable for what you get! I used to use Advil but decided to switch to Tylenol and this works much better! I am very satisfied with this product and would recommend it to anyone!
This is a medicine cabinet staple for me. I currently use a drug that I am unable to use Ibuprofen and Asprin with, so this an awesome alternative that does not react with most meds. Tylenol typically works within 20 minutes and I don't need the second dose before the end of the day.
I like keeping these in my car and my purse. It’s the perfect size to travel with. I use to never think Tylenol worked until this was the only thing I could find when I had a headache and now I always keep them on me just in case
I don't like tynenol I'm always scared to take it . From my younger days I would throw it back up. Even though doctors would give me. I can tolerate. But when I'm on my ownI get shivers. I try to avoid this aspirin. I usually just suffer or get something that can try to ease my pain.
This is the perfect amount to through in my purse when traveling or put in my desk at work. I love that they are divided up into doses and I never have to worry about lugging around a huge bottle. The extra strength is great at combatting the mid-workday headaches and relieves the tension fast. I keep these on hand at all times.
Nothing fancy abut these caplets. I see them as the basic Tylenol product and they work just as I need them to. I have found that these work in a decent amount of time and I don't need the rapid release ones or anything like that. I will probably buy this again if I have a coupon, if not I'll buy the generic version of this.
Tylenol has a great product that is very effective at keeping a fever at bay, especially alternated with ibuprofen. With that said, I haven't purchased this brand in many years because a generic brand has worked just as well for us.
This is my holy grail I suffer so much of migraines and yes I do carry this big value bottle with me all the time so it does comes to use often when I'm not feeling well or when someone else as well
I like these when I am sore or have muscle tenderness. Overall though, I prefer alleve liquid gels because they seem to be more faster acting. Tylenol extra strength is available most places and overall I'd recommend it to others.
