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!

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
