I always keep a bottle of Tylenol around my house just in case my family or friends need any. It works well for minor pain and for fevers, but for headaches, toothaches or muscle pain I tend to reach for something else.

Just as good as UK paracetamol but works extra fast. Really effective and easy to swallow. I buy it in America as I can't get it in England and works just as well if not better than alternatives. I always stock up when I go abroad

I was using this product every day for my tooth ache, once it began to throb nothing else worked. You can feel it going to work as the pain will subside through out 20 minutes. This product worked very well for me.

If I run out of my Tylenol Ultra pills for headaches then I will take 2 of these pills instead and they work amazingly! I've been using it for years now and it's definitely a must have in my medicine cabinet.

Tylenol is the only thing I can take while pregnant, and it seems to work well. I have to say, it's not as good as other pain killers I've tried, as they take longer to kick in. Overall, does the job.
