I find, in most cases, I only need to take one for my migraines.  The pain usually goes away within 30 minutes. For extreme migraines, I may need to take a second tablet.  Tylenol is always available somewhere for a good price.  Tylenol is my "go to" brand for pain releif

Tylenol is my go to for all my achs and pains. I could not functions some days without it. I take 2 and I can go on with my day. It helps with my joint pain from a chronic illness so Tylenol is my friend.

Tylenol always helps get rid of my headaches and sore body but too much of it is obviously not great for your liver - a hot bath and a nap can both be alternatives to relieve headaches and sore body parts

After 30+ years of migraines, i cant imagine life without Tylenol extra strength in it! It has been a significantpart of my pain management for ages and a vital necessity to get thru my worst headaches.

A staple for when I am travelling light, hiking in the mountains, or just in my gym bag or purse. It works well, its small and compact and its a hard case, so it doesn't damage the pills. I also have a bigger bottle in my medicine cabinet, so when the 10 are done, I just reuse the container and add another 10.

When I had my concussion last year that kept me out of school and work for 8 months I took these and it helped me to be able to leave my house when I had a migraine. Super great for headaches I love it.

I use this product weekly. Mostly for headaches which I often get. I choose this product because it is easy on my stomach. Having had kidney problems in the past, tylenol seems to be the safest for me.
