Tylenol extra strength is the best. If I have an ache, it relives my pain right away vs others that seem to take forever to kick in. I only use it when I need to but it always helps me and it is nice to have at home

I usually try to tough it out when I'm hurting but when I really need it I'll take Tylenol. Works good when needed and I like that it was safe enough to take while pregnant and also the infant Tylenol helped my little one after shots!

I get headaches from the sun very easily and Tylenol never lets me down! It works almost immediately and is not too large of a pill. It is not too pricey so I always stick with this pill. Would definitely buy again!

Tylenol is my usual go to pain reliever. It’s convenient and gets the job done. Price wise it is decent and you can always find coupons for them! Your local grocer or Walmart is your best bet for the cheapest price!
