- "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
I do not like this product at all some affective but I do not like the side effects of it so I used to take this medicine all the time causes liver damage and so that's why I do not like it I would never bad again
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.
Tylenol makes the world go around. Seriously who knows what kind of immense pain I would be without it. Migraines, headaches, tooth aches, sprains, cramps... the list goes on an in. Literally works for most things.
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.
Holy crap these things work like magic. I love the high mgs so I can take two and actually feel the affect in 30 min. They are affordable and totally worth it!! I will absolutely buy it agin for every period I ever get.
I usually never take medicine for pain but when I do, Tylenol is the medicine to go to! I find instant relief whether it's from working out, cramps, headaches to hangovers, Tylenol extra strength has always worked!
