- "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
These are simply amazing for getting rid of minor aches and pains. They are prefect for getting rid of headaches and the convenient tiny bottle makes it perfect to throw inside your purse to bring it with you anywhere
I love this little Tylenol container for keeping in my purse. It's very convenient to always have some with me. I found it for a great price at my local store. I would definitely recommend it. Also great for travel!
I used this after giving birth because it's a bit better to take while breast feeding. I find it's not strong enough some days to battle my chronic headaches though. I would buy it again
Trusted brand for pain, dizziness and related ailments. Purchased through local drug stores so it's easy to find. Very affordable and very effective. I always have this in my bag and it's a very important essential!
I love this medicine, I am allergic to lot of analgesic but Tylenol. It is the only one that saves me when I'm feverish or with migraines. Eu adoro esse remédio, eu sou alérgica à vários medicamentos menos ao Tylenol, ele me salva sempre que estou com febre ou enxaqueca.
It gets the job done, the taste it pretty bad though so wouldn't recommend crushing them up to drink it if you can shallow pills, there is an extra strength pills that have an easy to sallow coating that works same
I don't know what it is about Tylenol but it just does not work for me! It's still a number one in my household as its my husbands go too for pain relief! Good price! Just not for this gal!
I've been using this kind of Tylenol for many years now and it has been effective. Depending on the headache sometimes I have to take two which helps. It's affordable for what it is and they last awhile if you don't have headaches all the time. I would definitely keep buying this product.
These are perfect for traveling and also perfect to bring everywhere . It works effectively and i can purchase it at a drug store or at the dollar store , I use it more then I take Advil because it works better.
Great for in the purse or gym bag. On the go needing a little meds to get you through. I refill this container after because it’s so handy. The pills work like they should and taste great for some strange reason.
