When you have a headache or just expirening minor aches and pains what do you take Advil ,Tylenol or some other medicine. For me I take advil liquid gels. Thoses things work fast and great for me. If im sick and have a fever, I'll take tylenol though.

Tylenol is what I take if I have a headache but it has to be bad enough before I take it. If I get a headache usually it is due to lack of caffeine. When I am fighting a cold or fever I reach for the tylenol.

For a headache I use Excedrin migraine. If I take it at the onset of a headache, it never gets to a full blown migraine.

One of my close friends has those caffeine headaches too if she misses her Dr. Pepper fix in the morning.

I take aleve for back pain. It works well if I don't take it a lot. I don't usually take anything for a headache. If I get a headache it usually means that I am tired so I will just go to sleep and that takes care of the problem.

I used to take Advil but it's not working for me. I haven't tried Tylenol yet. I just take a good nap for headache. I take Biogesic too and i think it works better than Advil.

I take Aleve for back pain and I take Motrin/Advil for everything else. Except when I have a "I have not had any caffeine" headache. For that I take Excedrine.

I always take Advil for pain and fever as for pain ie. headache, Advil gives muscles relaxant too as opposed to Tylenol. I feel much better with Advil so it is number one medicin for pain and fever, to me. Cheers, Cest_moi

I always take tylenol rapid release. That seems to be the only thing that works for me.
