It gets the job done but I only use it because I'm allergic to Advil. Fro. What other people say it seems pretty poor but I can't personally compare

Works great for my headaches. I have no complaints. I would get the generic brand of acetaminophen though as it works the same, but is a lot cheaper.

Its ok for headaches i believe i personally don't think they are very good for any cramps or pain. The p.m. works very well but original not so much.

I get really bad headaches and migraines and this stuff works long term and is fast acting. I simply just take two and am on my way to start my day!

Fast headache relief. It is also mild enough that it doesn’t upset my stomach. It lasts a long time as well so I don’t have to keep taking it often.
