This is the only pain reliever product I trust. I use it multiple times a week for both headaches and any other ache or pain. It works fast and is long acting. You can find it pretty much anywhere pain relievers are sold.

As someone with chronic stomach problems, sometimes Advil is too hard on the stomach and Tylenol does the trick. I normally buy it wherever I have a coupon and can get it on sale. It is affordable. Would absolutely recommend to people with stomach issues.

I usually buy this for $1 at dollar tree. It's pretty effective in taking my headaches away. I switch up between Tylenol and Ibuprofen. I take two capsules when I need to, never more. It does work for me just fine.

I take these for my knee and back pains. They seem to be fairly fast acting, and they are reasonably priced. You definitely get your money's worth with them. It's one of those items that most all drug stores have on hand.
