COMPARE TO TYLENOL® Extra Strength Caplets
For the temporary relief of minor aches and pains associated with the common cold, flu, sore throat, headache, toothache, muscular aches, backache, and menstrual cramps, for the minor pain of arthritis and to reduce fever.
I have used this product over the years and have been very pleased with it. My wife uses it sometimes because she is on a blood thinner and can't take aspirin. I am also ordering Valerin because it also helps her with leg cramps in bed at night.
