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
Whenever i experience body pain, i always take tylenol. It is effective for me and easy to swallow. It is a quick relief for body pain. I’d recommend this product.
Definitely works for me. Sometimes when I have the flu and can’t go to a doctor or buy prescription medicines I just take two or three tablets and voila I’m alright again!
Can always count on Tylenol when I have a headache or a little ache somewhere. And the coated red ones are very easy to swallow if you have a tough time swallowing pills.
I used these when I got my wisdom teeth pulled and they worked miracles. I had little to no pain and was able to deal with the recovery period much quicker than expected
Tylenol works well in my opinion BUT when I was a young teenager I was addicted to Tylenol. The sugary coating is what I craved. I beat that addiction but use it carefully and only as needed now.
Great affordable & effective pain relief product! Will repurchase this again and again and recommend to everyone. I generally buy it at shoppers drug mart or superstore.
This is my go to product, I love how fast acting this is! I buy it at Walmart for a very cheap price! Very effective product!! Highly recommended to buy if you have not yet!
I am an avid tylenol user. I love the liquid Tylenol because it works much quicker than these pills do. Whenever I take them I’m not happy with how slow they are. Liquid Tylenol seems to do a much better job too. These are still in our medicine cabinet because we’ve ditched them for the liquid form!
Not always the best thing for my aches and pains but it seems to do the trick for my husband. And who can hate on something that makes their fella stop complaining?
I don't know what I'd do without Tylenol some days! I have a bad back and bad knees. I also like to run, garden, and I have a 3 year old with a physical disability that I have to pick up quite often. So by the middle of the day, I'm pretty sore! But if I take Tylenol in the morning, the pain never shows up! Thank you Tylenol for keeping me going!
