I carry Tylenol in my purse all the time. This is a product our family uses for everyday pain relief as needed. I would suggest this product to others as an effective pain relief medication. It is not to strong

Tylenol always takes any pain away and it's long lasting. It definitely met all of my expectations. I use this anytime that I'm having pains! Is better than any other pain reliever. I will definitely buy again.

I like this when there isn’t any Advil and these are better for breaking fevers. But they don’t last long and work as good but the get the job done when you don’t have anything Advil

Tylenol is a product that I have used since I was little and it is a very good headache and fever reducer. I take two tablets and feel fine in a matter of an hour. It is very fast to kick in and very effective.

Tylenol has become a household name because they're good a what they do. This product is a good pain reliever and is works pretty fast. Whenever I don't use ibuprofen, I pop one of these for my menstrual cramps.

I honestly don't take pain pills other than for menstrual cramps. These work very well for that type of pain. I've also used these in the past for fever and work good as well. They are found at any drug store really :)
