Tylenol is my go to pain reliever. I swear by it and always have some in my bag, in my car, in my nightstand, you get the picture. Most recently though, I used it to help inflammation from a bad sunburn. My friend had gotten a terrible sunburn after being out in the sun all day, and she thought it was definitely going to blister. She was confused why I handed her a huge glass of water and some tylenol, but after a few days she thanked me saying that her burn had turned light pink and that she was feeling much better!
I like that whenever I take a Tylenol, I know that soon my pain will be dulled. Although this is an effective substance and I understand that this is not any super strength thing, with my more painful moments, it seems to just dull the pain for a bit before wearing off.
This stuff totally doesn't work, beside helping to minimize minor inflammation and fevers. We purchased this year's ago and hardly used any of it, my husband, kids and I find that other products work exponentially better than this. It's ok to keep around for fevers however, but it's basically the only instance where any of us reach for it whatsoever.
These are okay. I feel like I constantly have to take more than I am supposed to though, just so I can get some relief. Perhaps I should be taking extra strength but I feel like even the regular tablets should be able to get the job done.
It was nice to have a safer option when my toddler gave me a cornea laceration and I am currently pregnant. The pain was literally unbareable and I could not safely take any other pain medication. Tylenol helped relieve most of the pain and helped me sleep while I healed. I now also use it for really bad headaches.
Okay you guys! Tylenol is my other to go pain killer ! It works very well for my headaches and cramps and soreness ! It’s also not that expensive and if you are really looking forward to actually getting better ... then take one or two of these ;) I like this better than the gel ones because it’s easy to swallow!
Tylenol is always my go to pain reliever! I can feel it working within 30 mins of my headache beginning and it isn’t harsh on my stomach. Which is nice seeing as I have issues with other brands being to harsh for it!
I always take them when I am in pain although I honestly never pay attention to how effective they are but I now realize that they are because or else I would still be in pain. I think they are one of the stronger over the counter ones. Work great when looking for relieving pressure
Tylenol is a really great alternative to regular pain meds. This meets my expectations time and time again, the only thing is it is pricey. I am 21 and can take 2-4 tablets in order for it to kick in. It gets rid of pain for a good half day, and then you take more. Recommend
Had to take these while I was pregnant. They worked really well. I was so sick throughout the first 6months of my pregnancy. And I was put on some pretty pricey meds. After I was finally feeling better I had some serious aches so I had my husband buy me these works greats!
