- "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
Whenever I get a fever, these are what I grab to get back to sanity. They help me sleep through the night and get a good night's rest so I can have a speedy recovery.
Tylenol is a must have ! It works for everything! Headaches, body pain , menstrual cramps . I do remember Tylenol is the only over-the-counter medicine I was allow to use when I was pregnant because it doesn’t harm the baby
These pain relievers are really good for when I need a higher dose. I buy them them from Walmart. It is a really effective product. The price is very affordable. I would definitely buy this again and recommend it to others.
As someone with chronic stomach problems, sometimes Advil is too hard on the stomach and Tylenol does the trick. I normally buy it wherever I have a coupon and can get it on sale. It is affordable. Would absolutely recommend to people with stomach issues.
These really do work fast. They do not have a taste which is great. They are found almost everywhere. This does work faster than Advil. Depends on how many you want is the price. I think that I need to stock up on more.
I usually prefer acetaminophen for headaches and this works awesome. I normally take 2 and always have them on hand, these aren’t too expensive and you can have them at home in the car and in your bag! I would recommend!
This is a staple in my life I love Tylenol I have to have this in my bag I get so many headaches it's not even funny. This takes it out almost instantly if I have to pick I will pick Tylenol because for me is the best !!
These pills works so good they get rid of all the pain and makes you sleepy real good when i get a headache i take one and i feel better a few minutes later you can get these at any drugstore I recommend this to everyone.
Tylenol Extra Strength is what I use the most for headaches or any kind of body pain. it's very affordable, especially if you purchase it at Walmart. it always helps with the pain. I am very satisfied with the product!!
I usually buy this for $1 at dollar tree. It's pretty effective in taking my headaches away. I switch up between Tylenol and Ibuprofen. I take two capsules when I need to, never more. It does work for me just fine.
