I can’t take too much ibuprofen due to stomach issues , so this is my go to for any aches and pains...primarily headaches. I get migraines relatively frequently and this does the trick if I absolutely have to take something.

I use Tylenol for all my aches and pains. It is very gentle on my sensitive stomach. I purchased this product at Target. It is very affordable and it works as well or better than other pain relievers. I would buy it again.

Tylenol has been a lifesaver during this pregnancy. I wouldn't normally go with this brand, but it works great in the meantime. Very affordable, meeting my expectations, and I'm satisfied overall. Will continue to purchase!
