reDolooooor!! Jeje si te pegaste o tienes algun dolor muscular te recomiendo este producto es buenisimo y controla el dolor y te relaja yo lo uso y me es efectivo
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.
Tylenol is my go to med for any ache or pain. I have fibromyalgia and sometimes my pain can come on quick when im out and on the go and i always have tylenol with me to help ease the pain until i can get home to relax
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
Life savers! I only use Tylenol extra strength for my horrible migraines and pains. I take it as soon as I feel a migraine or pain and within 30 minutes it helps! Great product, that I carry with me all the time!
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.
It is best to soothe any pain in your body; is super effective and fast acting. I take it safely and was the only thing that medejaron taken during pregnancy and breast-feeding so it will not affect to my baby
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.
Tylenol is what I use everytime I have a headache! I personally like it better than advil because I feel like it works better for me! I always buy it from shoppers drug mart! These pills really satisfy me!
