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
Honestly I hate taking medicine like this. I try to stick to herbal supplements and natural pain relievers, but sometimes it just doesn't help. Any time I have horrible cramps or pain that I can't cure with herbs I always turn to Tylenol. It gets the job done, isn't super expensive, and available just about anywhere.
When I was pregnant with both my kids. This was the only stuff that I could take. It was pretty effective. I buy mine at Walmart because it's a good price there. And I will continue to buy it. And yeah I'm pretty satisfied with it.
I actually started using this in college because this was the only medicine that they sold and I'm lucky it was because I tried many paid mediinces and they didn't last or didn't work enough and thus proud did that for me my pain goes away a lot faster and last a lot longer
These are convenient to keep in your purse. The tube is very small and easy to store anywhere. Tylenol works great for headaches, body aches, etc. I love to have these on hand for my time of month, too. It makes it easier to bring with me and really helps my pain.
Love this product! Gets rid of all my pain ,headaches and back pain faster than any other pain pill. I buy this one because I trust the name and its always on sale vs other brands that are to high for less product inside the bottle . Plus you can get coupons for the product in the paper
Tylenol is my family's go to pain relief pill. It never fails to ease away the pain within minutes. You take the right amount and within the hour you're feeling like your old self again. This is probably one of the OTC meds that I don't have a problem with. Great product!
this product works great for any aches or pains. It does cut any fever out eventually. It takes a long time before actually kicking in. It's pretty affordable so that's never an issue. If you have a high pain tolerance than this would be great for you. I'm a wimp so I end up in pain for about an hour before it works.
My son just recently had an emergency root canal and the doctor prescribed him 800 mg of Ibuprofen. My son hated taking them because he said they give him headaches and made him feel really weird. I went out and bought him Tylenol and he said the pain went away and he didnt feel strange after taking them. Tylenol for the win!
I use to love these , but not anymore ! To me they don't work at all ! They take way to long to work and I always feel like I have to take more just for them to work. I can find cheaper and better brands that actually work .
It's not my first choice when it comes to pain reliever but the extra strength seems to work better than the regular ones. The pills are to big for me to swallow so I always have to cut them in half or dilute them in water.
