Both Regular Strength and Extra Strength TYLENOL contain acetaminophen, the active ingredient which works to relieve mild to moderate pain.
Acetaminophen is considered an excellent choice because it is the least likely of all over-the-counter pain relievers to cause stomach irritations and interact with other medications. TYLENOL is widely used to treat pain due to:
Headaches (migraine and tension headaches)
Muscle aches and sprains

Chemical Name: Acetaminophen
Dosage: 500 mg
My mother's doctor recommended she use this for her arthritis pain in her hip while she waits for surgery. She finds these easy to swallow and prefers the sweetener on the pill instead of the bitterness other pain relievers have.
one of the best for my back pain, does not react with my other meds, the coating is a bonus,
I can take this because it is sweet enough that I can handle, with other pills I need to put them in tea or hot food to hide the taste of the pill.
