  • "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

I have tried them as a last resort sometimes and they don't help with pain. It's affordable but it doesn't do the trick for me. I would personally find better alternatives like Aleve. I wouldn't mind trying something natural. I wouldn't buy it again.

These are so useful. I always take them when I have a headache! And they always do the job. And totally worth the price! They always meet my expectations. What you see is what you get. Would buy again for sure!

This is my go to pain medication for headaches and sore muscles! It works quickly and effectively and is not hard on the stomach. I much prefer this over ibuprofen products. We also use Tylenol (kids/infant) for our children when needed!

What can I say, its Tylenol. Although it only tells your brain not to be in pain instead of actually targeting any inflammation like ib profine, it still works. Classic and the only pill alot of people who have kidney or liver damage can use.

I am allergic to ibuprofen, so the acetaminophen in Tylenol is all I can really use for pain. Lucky for me, it’s a fantastic product. Tylenol is the only thing that can lower a fever for me or alleviate my period pain. I swear by it.

Great pain and fever reliever. I have been using this brand all my life since my parents always bought it when I was growing up. I stayed loyal to the brand ever since. I do not use it often, but when I need it I am glad to have it on hand.

Tylenol has always been my go to because, for me, it has quick and lasting results. I can usually find it cheaper than other alternatives such as Advil. I use this for aches and pains, as well as headaches and it hasn't let me down.
