  • "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 only take Tylenol when I’m pregnant. They have been great to relieve my headaches due to a lack of caffeine and help relieve my ache and pains. They also helped reduce my fever when I was sick and helped ease my sore throat.

It’s a very effective product for 500mg per pill. I don’t usually try alternatives because i don’t want to swallow more pills to get the same effect. I’ve been using since i was a teenager for minor aches, pains, or fevers. Never has given me an issue

Tylenol...you can't go wrong. I always pick up one of these when I'm in the store and stock up because you can never have enough. I throw some in my purse and have them with me at all times. I find it works better and faster than Advil! I definetly recommend!

Extra Strength Tylenol has been my go to over-the-counter pain medication for years. There are times it doesn’t work 100% with severe headaches but that’s just part of life I guess! Overall they are affordable and work good.

This works good for me! Every once in a while I have to take this product for a headache or some weird body ache but every time I have taken it it works. I don’t use it too often only when needed and it has never let me down

This product works okay in my opinion I don't really like having to take it over and over again every few hours. I prefer something that will take care of the pain for a longer amount of time. I really only take Tylenol when I'm desperate. I think that its usually a good value for the price especially since you have to take quite a few if you're consistently in pain...

You can never go wrong with standard Tylenol. I carry this little bottle with me especially if I'm traveling. You never know when you'll need it. I mainly use it for body aches, it doesn't work for me when I have headaches.
