I don't need to use this much but when I do, this Tylenol always relieves any pain! Headache, cramps, whatever- 2 pills does the job. Super affordable and very effective. This is what I always end up repurchasing.

Tylenol is the best. Being pregnant, this is the only pain medication I can take but it kicks in fast and always helps with my migraines a d headaches. I don't like to use it if I don't have to, I try to sleep then off, but when I don't have the option of sleeping, I will take some Tylenol.

Works like a charm! Any aches or pains I might have from strenuous activity are gone! I also take it to help chest pain after a bad cough or with fever. It's available literally everywhere so never a hard find.

Decongested my sinus efficiently, and therefore helped me get through my exam period without annoying everyone with my running nose and sniffles! Also slightly soothed my sore throat, reducing how much I coughed.
