- "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 don’t take anything other than this for pain. It’s a great deal for the amount that you get with it. It’s great to carry in your purse or to have extra around for the convenience.
Since I've been pregnant this is the only things I can drink but so far the work better and faster then other pills I've used and I will keep purchasing this even after I have my baby and I recommend for others to try it.
This is my go to for any kind of pain. One usually does the trick. I️ recommend it. I️ do not suffer from any side affects and it’s very fast acting. You can purchase this over the counter medication anywhere.
Tylenol is great. I used it when I had an allergic reaction the other day and it brought my symptoms down to almost nothing. Great value for the price. I would definitely recommend Tylenol to anybody that asks
My go to pain reliever, combined with aspirin. I get headaches often and one of each usually does the trick for me. Easy to swallow. My poor liver is going to give out on me one day with the amount I consume.
Ive never had any issues when it comes to tylenol. It's my go to for any kind of aches and pains i may have. Half the time it's even strong enough to get rid of my migraines which I frequently get. Love this stuff
Tylenol has always worked for me and is the first thing I reach for when I get a headache or cramps. It works instantly and lasts for many hours. I only have to take it once and I'm good for the rest of the day.
Tylenol usually does it's job but takes a bit long to do so. However it is effective ones it starts to work. I take this for headaches mostly it's affordable and can be purchased at most drugstores and Walmart.
Since I'm pregnant these pills have been a life saver since they are the only ones I'm allowed to take for pain at the moment. They work very well and fast which is great! I would definitely recommend this .
I can only take Tylenol because of a bleeding disorder I have. It really helps with pain, especially my headaches. I typically take extra strength when I'm in severe pain. It does it's job and it affordable.
