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!

I use this product if I feel a migraine coming on. I will definately buy it again!

This is my go to for any aches and pains or small headaches. These pills get the job done. Now when I get a migraine, I do have to use something stronger, but overall I'd recommend this for general aches and pains.

When I'm feeling achey because of sickness or just because of soreness, this is my go-to. It helps relieve aches, chills, soreness and overall pain. It's a very effective product and I would recommend it to others.

I take Tylenol for headaches, joint/muscle pain, cramps, and pain from ovarian cysts, and it works great. These are easy to swallow, and I usually only need to take 1, instead of the allowed dosage of 2 at a time!

I really love this because you can take this with most medications and it's one of the only things you can take while pregnant unlike Advil. It's really good for headaches and any muscle pain. I'm pretty satisfied.
