Works wonders. I don't think I have to say anything because Tylenol is tried and time and time again it does great, but would recommend.

Great for muscle pain and aches!  I like that it's extra strength because it also stays in my system for the whole day and I don't feel the need to repeat the dose every 4-6 hours.

When I had my wisdom teeth taken out, the pain medication the dentist gave me were way to strong for me.. So I ended up having to make a trip to Walmart to buy these. They work wonders let me tell you.. For me the ABSOLUTE BEST thing is that they don’t give me not one side effect.💯
