- "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
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
I'm always having the Tylenol when I feel pain in my body or head ! I bring one pack in my bag for everywhere in case of emergency. That's the best one I'm not allergic and really works for me! I still buying and using
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!
Always helps with my headaches. I don't take anything unless I really need to but this is my go to and it helps with my headaches and migraines and such. Very good value and price on it too. I'm pretty happy with them.
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.
My father always relies on this product when he goes to work. He suffers from migraines while driving his truck for hours and it totally helps him cope with the pain. I totally recommend this product for migraine sufferers!
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.
Excellent medication for headaches and aches and pains such as migraines. I have many years of my life using this product and its results are unmatched. It is a high quality product and recommended by professionals.
