I've been a regular tylenol user since it came out - much more effective than aspirin.  I haven't really tried the other categories of pain relievers.  Didn't really see the need to switch since this works well for me.Only use occasionally, I'm in good health and I don't have any chronic pain conditions

Tylenol extra strength is a great every day pain reliever. They're cheap and easy to find, almost every store has them. They don't relieve severe pain obviously but they work well for what they're supposed be used for.

Tylenol is a staple in my household. I have it on hand as it’s a great medicine to alternate with ibuprofen as needed. Tylenol helps with every ache and pain that happens in my family!! It’s best for achy flu symptoms!

I keep a large bottle of this in my desk at work. It takes a good half hour to work but I have to have pain relief in arms reach due to my frequent migraines. Pair this with a skinny latte and say bye bye to headaches!

Use this for headaches when I don't have a migraine. It always knocks them out within an hour at most. Good value for the price. Comparable to other acetaminophen brands. I still normally choose Tylenol over other brands.

I used this when my ankle bothered me and it helped with the pain. I use it less than a year. It met my expectations when I take it at night before bed. It was affordable and I would buy it again. I would recommend it.
