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 prefer Tylenol Extra Strength over regular because it just works better for my pain levels. I have a lot of teeth and back issues and I am constantly in pain. I love how I just take 2 and it brings me relief all day.

These are amazing. They work so good and they're better than any other brand I've ever tried out before. They start working right away and I can always get these at any drugstore. So it's pretty convenient for me.

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.

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.
