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.

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.

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.

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.
