Tylenol® Extra Strength Caplets for Adults
- "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
Great price for 225 capsules. The bottle will sure to last the whole year.. tylenol extra strength is my go-to for when I get headaches..they never fail me.
Does nothing for me, it's almost like eating sugar candy. I won't take any more than two at a time but I don't find they work as well as Advil at all.
As someone who has a high tolerance for pain tylenols of any strength jus don't work for me. The price of them are a bit high but they are always on special.
This is great for Pms symptoms. Would recommend for people who suffer from medium pms pain. However my sister has hard pain symptoms and this doesnt help.
Really helps with pain relief. The pills are easy to swallow and not to large in size. The pills also dont have a flavour to them unlike some other brands
I really don't like these Tylenol extra strength pills they don't work for me at all and and I have found better alternatives to cure my pain than Tylenol
This is a great value for my money plus it comes in smaller packets so I can keep some in the bedroom, car and purse. Tylenol helps with my headache needs.
This is my favourite pain medication. I really love that it's not candy coated because the candy coating makes me feel ill. Works fast and isn't too pricey
Another one of my go to's for my aches and pains. I use it alongside advil and the combination of the two are great for relieving whatever is bothering me
These Tylenol are my go to when I am in any pain and it does the job. I bought them at the drugstore and for around 10 dollars I always carry them on me
