Tylenol® Extra Strength Caplets for Adults will last a long time. It works great on fevers and minor headaches. My only concern is the possibility of liver damage when taken with alcohol. So please don't use for a hangover unless necessary.

4 stars, only because of the recent warnings about liver damage. When my sciatica and/or arthritis is acting up, 3 of these helps. I also use Gabapentin for peripheral neuropathy.

I didn't want to take any prescription drugs after my surgery so I took Tylenol Extra Strength Caplets. They worked extremely well for when I couldn't manage on my own. I did not feel queasy or nauseous after.

This product is okay! I used to take it all the time growing up but now that I am older I don't as much. It is rather pricey but I usually get it from Walmart and its usually on sale. Compared to others it doesn't work as fast. I would reccomend it to people who like a light effect
