Backache? What backache? I feel great over here! I don't have to sit out the day and be the mom with a headache. Nope! I am up and out there embarrassing my kids like a great mother does! You are getting more for less!!! I do not like the pain but I am glad I have you to back me up, literally!
Tylenol is a staple for aches and pains, headaches and fevers in my house. It works fast. I haven’t noticed any side effects that are negative. I buy it usually at Kroger. I am always satisfied with tylenol.
Tylenol is an effective pain reliever and helps when in the need of breaking a fever. I find that many times tylenol helps more than other pain relievers to break my fever, some products don't really break my fever compared to when tylenol does. It also helps if I have any body aches.
When nothing else stops a headache or pain, I take Tylenol Extra Strength and within an hour the pain is gone. I take Tylenol with me whenever I travel. This is hands down the best pain reliever around.
I grew up on Tylenol and have never strayed! You can use this for so many different types of pain! Headaches, menstrual cramps, muscle pains and so much more. Not to mention, it is super affordable! I always pick my up from Walmart or Walgreens, and keep in my car in case I need it while I am out and not at home!
Tylenol is one the best brand of pain medication in my opinion! If I have an ache or pain and I take one these writhing 30 minutes it is gone and I feel better. I was very satisfied with this brand! I will definitely buy this brand when I need it.
Tylenol® Extra Strength Caplets for Adults has always come in handy when it comes to pain killer. It has been a life saver for me and has helped me so much with my pain. It’s definitely recommend if the pain is unbearable. It’s my go to over the counter pain relief medication.
Tylenol is the only thing that I can take for pain right now due to being pregnant. I feel that I have to take excessive amounts for it to relieve any sort of pain. I also believe that it can be pricey to have very inexpensive, effective alternatives.
These are perfect for on the go! I don't like taking any kind of medication especially pills but for the times I have a really bad headache or am just sick I will take Tylenol. It's affordable and effective.
