Tylenol is my favorite pain killer its just always my go to and it kicks in so fast. I literally can pick up Tylenol from anywhere even the gas station. Not pricey at all and worth it so you wont have to keep going to local stores for single packs when you need them right away.

I like these when I am sore or have muscle tenderness. Overall though, I prefer alleve liquid gels because they seem to be more faster acting. Tylenol extra strength is available most places and overall I'd recommend it to others.

Honestly I hate taking medicine like this. I try to stick to herbal supplements and natural pain relievers, but sometimes it just doesn't help. Any time I have horrible cramps or pain that I can't cure with herbs I always turn to Tylenol. It gets the job done, isn't super expensive, and available just about anywhere.

Tylonal has been around forever- and still works great! I have used this product for years and never been disappointed. They have so many different options for their products, as well as kids products as well- Super affordable and easy to find at most retailers and even some convenience stores. I would recommend Tylonal.

When I was pregnant with both my kids. This was the only stuff that I could take. It was pretty effective. I buy mine at Walmart because it's a good price there. And I will continue to buy it. And yeah I'm pretty satisfied with it.

I don't know what I'd do without Tylenol some days! I have a bad back and bad knees. I also like to run, garden, and I have a 3 year old with a physical disability that I have to pick up quite often. So by the middle of the day, I'm pretty sore! But if I take Tylenol in the morning, the pain never shows up! Thank you Tylenol for keeping me going!

I actually started using this in college because this was the only medicine that they sold and I'm lucky it was because I tried many paid mediinces and they didn't last or didn't work enough and thus proud did that for me my pain goes away a lot faster and last a lot longer

My son just recently had an emergency root canal and the doctor prescribed him 800 mg of Ibuprofen. My son hated taking them because he said they give him headaches and made him feel really weird. I went out and bought him Tylenol and he said the pain went away and he didnt feel strange after taking them. Tylenol for the win!

These are convenient to keep in your purse. The tube is very small and easy to store anywhere. Tylenol works great for headaches, body aches, etc. I love to have these on hand for my time of month, too. It makes it easier to bring with me and really helps my pain.
