Tylenol® Extra Strength Caplets for Adults
- "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 have aches and pains quite often with knee problems and this is my go to for pain. This also helps with my headaches or menstrual cramps. It is very effective and I would definitely buy it again in the future!
Tylenol ES is always my go to pain reliever first. It works so well! I only ever have to take like 2 and my pain goes away. It's not expensive either. I'd recommend to everyone! I always carry a small bottle in my purse.
I've used Tylenol for a long time ,wouldn't use anything else. I purchased it at Walmart. I think it works more effectively than other brands. It could be a little less expensive. Yes I would recommend to others
There's so many counts can I really use this within 2 years?! But of course there are others who need to use a lot more often. Good just like Advil really no difference between the two. Just go with the price.
This is a great pain reliever. I had a concussion and couldn't take Advil with it because it causes bleeding so I bought this Tylenol and really liked it! It lasted a long time and relived me of my headaches.
I swear by Tylenol when something is hurting, or when I have a headache. Tylenol usually takes care of the problem super fast! It was affordable at about $3-$4 for a small package, I would purchase this again!
Can't go wrong with Tylenol for any minor ache or pain. I get headaches often and this is always my first line of defensive. I take Tylenol and shortly after the headache is.m gone!
Quick acting, easy to take (smaller pills) & works for awhile. Not for the worst of injuries but if you have a head ache this should be your go to. I use this product almost every time I have an ache or pain.
Mostly use these for when my knee starts to hurt or if I have cramps during the time of the month and it helps take away the pain. This is the only thing I've really used besides ibuprofen and it works amazing
I love them especially for cramps they are the best I like them better than any other pills and they are not expensive at all so I highly recommend it to everyone it helps you a lot when your having a bad pain
