I like it it's effective and fast wich is more important i feel satisfied one of my favorite brands is tylenol, i use it a lot maybe too much always works, even with horrible headaches that i sufer
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.
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.
I don't necessarily take it all the time, because I usually tough it out. But if it is really bad and can't handle the pain this is the product I reach for and would recommend
I like this product i buy it in the store and drugstore its cheap and helps me release the pain i used for my period pain and my back pain its great and work for headaches to
I recently used these, they do the trick for sure - however I have trouble swallowing pills so I prefer Tylenols EZ tablets, they are smaller and coated so they taste a bit better and go down smoother.
I take Tylenol only when I absolutely have to. I find that if I take it often then the product does not work to cure the issue. My boyfriend swears by them though so they are always in our cabinet
Absolutely great product that definitely gets the job done when I need it to. Works amazingly fast as well. Always make sure to carry it around with me in case I need it. Highly recommend to everyone that needs it! Great!
I really use Tylenol for any kind of discomfort, I think it covers a lot of spectrum and can influence both body discomfort and headaches. For what I consider to be a quite versatile medicine
Works good for headaches but with any pills If you take it too often it loses its effect but works if interchanged with other pills and gets the job done gets rid of headaches fast affordable I think compared to other products works well I like it would reconnect
