This is good for all types of discomfort and pains. Tylenol is the only thing I use when I am in pain. I try not to use pain relief but Tylenol is one brand I trust. I recommend this to other people as well.

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.

When I had a stomach ulcer, I was afraid to use Advil anymore. While you have to be more careful about dosing with Tylenol, it's a good alternative for people with digestive issues. It also works better for fevers

Tylenol doesn't really seem to work very well on me. Even when using the extra strength. It was the only thing I was allowed to take during my pregnancy for my head aches but it didn't seem to work as well as Advil.

This a very convenient tube that is small and fits easily in my purse. It is not expensive and it has enough pills when you are on the go. This product did meet my expectations. I was very satisfied overall.
