I suffer from back problems and I live with Tylenol. I like the individual wrapped packages, since I can throw some in my portfolio without having to load the whole bottle.

Always a go to when I have a headache. Also helps with back aches. I buy Tylenol from Walmart or Shoppers Drug Mart. I like the extra strength best because it relieves my pain faster I find. It never disappoints and it always cures my headaches. Definitely recommend!

This is my preferred medicine whenever I'm suffering from a bad headache. It really works so fast and would usually completely remove any pain. The price is reasonable and I like that they have a smaller bottles which is very handy! Would definitely recommend this.

I take this when I have a fever. I think it's pretty effective and does meet expectations. I don't take it too often, but when I'm sick it does the job. I like the extra strength ones because I don't have to worry about taking them when I'm sick as frequently.

This product is great for minor relief of aches and pains, though it does the trick with alleviating pain, you have to constantly take more and more throughout the day. Unfortunately the more that you take, the more damaging it can be to your liver as well.

Standard paracetamol product. Does the job for aches and pains. It is nothing different to generic brand ones. And a little on the pricey side. I wouldn’t be upset by them not being in stock. I would recommend to others

When I have a headache or a pain, this is usually my go to. You can find it at almost any grocery store, pharmacy, or convenience store. I always make sure to have a bottle of this in my medicine cabinet because you never know when you're going to need it!
