- "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
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
For some reason I find that Tylenol works a lot better for me than Advil. I’m not sure why, but it does alleviate any pain or aches I have and always tends to me needs. i am satisfied with this product and it’s price point.
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.
When I have pain in my body Tylenol is the product I always reach for I don't really reach for others in this unless I'm out it definitely hit the expectation by thought it would and it works very well and it satisfies me over well
Usually doctors always recommend Tylenol for any type of pain so it's a good product and it's also very known! More than half of the times it work so I would recommend it and it's also affordable and easy to find anywhere .
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.
These are perfect to take on the go. I brought mine camping and they got rid of my sore muscles from hiking. Isn't too expensive. Exceeded my expectations. I have plenty left for the next time I go camping. Would recommend.
I always keep this in my purse! You never know when a migraine will unexpectedly pop up or cramps and this is always my go to. 10 full size pills which last me a decent time. Great price and very compact so it doesn’t take up a lot of space!
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!
Anytime i get a headache (pretty often with a toddler lol) or a body ache, i know i can rely in tylenol extra strength to relieve it so i may continue what i was doing.
