- "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
My family takes this for when we get a fever. It is very good and it helps a lot to alleviate the symptoms of a common cold. My little brother gets sick very often and this helps him a lot to get better faster. It is a great product and I recommend it to anybody.
Love the convenience of this package for popping it in my purse on the run. It's nice having a pain reliever with me at all times just in case. Works well and would absolutely buy again. They are effective and work quickly on the issues I have. Would recommend.
I used this product after I hurt myself playing tennis. I really did like it, but I do not use it often at all. I found it very effective and I was not disappointed, I would recommend it to another user. I would but this product from shoppers drug mart again.
This is my go-to pain relief medicine. Whether I have a headache or suffering from cramps, Tylenol seems to relieve my pain. I find it a better option than Advil in my opinion. Plus it's pretty cheap too so that's a plus. Affordable and effective.
Siempre lo uso cuando tengo un dolor insoportable de cabeza o cuando me ataca la fiebre. Me ayuda mucho con el cuerpo cortado cuando tengo gripa o tos y sin duda tambien para dolores corporales. Lo recomiendo muchisimo, sobre todo si hay mucho dolor.
This only usually works for me if I'm really sick. Not really for An ache. I use this maybe once every couple months. I buy this usually from shoppers or Walmart. The price is average I'd say. I would buy again because I do find it helpful for some things.
Tylenol has always been my go-to, especially when I was in pain during pregnancy. They were doctor recommended as safe, as well as being easily accessible and affordable at any local store that sold any kind of pain relief--including the gas station!
I don't know what I would do without these. If I have a headache, 2 of these and 15 minutes and the headache subsides. I've been a Tylenol person, always have been always will be. I always grab these when they are on sale. And they have great sales!
Has a good coating, easy to swallow effective and inexpensive. Purchased at my local drugstore and now at the dollar store. Tylenol always meets my expectations and I am always satisfied with there brand. Great company and always reasonable pricing.
Rapid relief from fever and headache. In my opinion is the best remedy to have at home, as it can be consumed by people with dengue and even by pregnant women. It is a great choice for you are allergic to dipyrone. I feel safe using this medicine.
