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
I have suffered from extremely bad sinus headaches for over 7 years. Tylenol extra strength is the only over the counter medicine that has ever helped relieve my headaches! I honestly do not know what I would do without it.
Literally the worst pain medicine ever. I have severe chronic widespread pain(7+ years now) due to various chronic illnesses & autoimmune diseases, and this "extra strength" tylenol doesn't even begin to cut it. I remember before seeking treatment at doctors I was taking sooo many tylenol a day with no help, it was like I didn't even take anything. I'm sure this helps those with minor, mild aches and pains but definitely not severe or chronic pain.
I haven’t had any issues with these...ever. I don’t use them often, however, they are very effective. I like that I can use these for if I have cramps from ovarian cysts, or from working out really hard, or a migraine.
This seriously takes away the most annoying headaches! I take 2 of them and in about half and hour my headache is gone! This won't help with those suffering migraines..but any other headache, fever, pains this will do.
I usually stray away from taking any kind of medication unless I feel miserable. I get really bad headaches and migraines. When I have a headache I just sleep it off. When I have a migraine I use this and it surprisingly does the job.
Tylenol extra strength is my go to anytime I have a headache or a pain. It’s very effective. I can buy it at my local grocery store or convenience store. It is a little more money than I’d like to spend but it works!
I've had these once but they don't taste the greatest , I prefer Advil over this. These work faster than Advil but they aren't as easy to take and they're a tad bit bigger . These are definitely more powerful though!
I get constant headaches so this works wonders for me. It’s the thing that I found worked the best, plus I have a dollar general by my house that sells it in case I run out. My friends know I always have some on me!
It works great! It doesn’t get rid of the pain instantly but it does reduce the pain or aching over time. However, when I take a nap or sleep throughout the night, I don’t have to worry about waking up with a headache. It is affordable and I do recommend it!
