These pills are the bomb when you need an anti inflammatory. They work super fast, don't knock you out cold (unless you take them before bed). Highly suggest for anyone who deals with aches and pain.

I like getting Tylenol for days when I have muscle aches, so after shovelling a lot of snow, going for a jog or after the gym to help my muscles recover. I always make sure to have some around the house.

As someone with chronic pain who can’t take ibuprofen, it can be really difficult to find a pain reliever that works just as well. I tried so many different brands but this one has been my saving grace.

These are pretty good and do the job they generally advertise. Not as fast acting as some others but it always seems to work. Generally good price point in comparison to others and available everywhere.

I try not to use pills for everything but if I really need one, I go for this product. It's works quickly is relieves any aches I have had. It's just as pricey as every other medication but worth it because it works.
