I don't take medicine unless I am absolutely forced to - I take these if I workout under a cold or a flu to sweat it out and avoid stiff muscles.

Very effective for headache, toothache or migraine. I recommend it. 100 pills is too much for a package but it's a great product by a good price.

Although Tylenol isn’t my first choice for pain relief I had to take it while pregnant. It did work wonders for me anytime I needed fast relief.

I find that Tylenol helps in some cases but not all. I like when the product helps, but when it doesn’t I use another alternative of pain relief.
