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
Helps with menstrual cycles and the occasional migraine. 500 mg is a great dose for the woman in her mid 20s weighing approximately 150 lbs. It meets my expectations. Would not exceed beyond the 500 mg dosage, unless otherwise approved by your physician.
This is a great size to keep at work, in the car, or in your bag. The price comparison per unit compared to the larger one isn't great, but you are paying for convenience. I usually buy once and refill with the larger bottle.
Tylenol is the typical drug store reliever but it does not do justice for me personally I don't know about anyone else. I bought it from Walmart now I would say it's the best alternative but I would buy it again if I need to
Tylenol brand products are my preferred choice for pain relief. I use Tylenol for headaches, fever and Tylenol for arthritis pain. It works well at relieving my pain whenever I use them. I use the Tylenol for arthritis pain more often (maybe several times a month). I would purchase again.
I usually take these now that I am pregnant. Migraines, headaches and back pain all make it difficult to function throughout the day. Take as directed or consult with a Doctor before take long a higher dose. Will make you drowsy.
These are generally my go to medicine for pain. They usually kick in rather quickly and last a while. I've never been disappointed before & would definitely recommend them to others. We use many Tylenol products in our home.
4 stars, only because of the recent warnings about liver damage. When my sciatica and/or arthritis is acting up, 3 of these helps. I also use Gabapentin for peripheral neuropathy.
Works great. I buy mine from target & within 29 minutes my pain isn't as bad. I take them when I get a headache so it helps. The product isn't that pricy & I don't over use it. But it's great & it's child proof for toddlers.
I try not to take them but they’re always there if i need to! They work for me when I have mild headaches. I have a bottle at home and a bottle at work. I only use it about 2 times a month if that! But I have them on hand for others!
tylenol is tylenol, take it when you have a headache or are running a fever to alleviate pain. generic does the exact same thing, some people are just more sensitive. something everyone should have in their medicine cabinet
