Using Tylenol As Arthritis Pain Controller

There are many products on the shelves at our local pharmacy that promise to relieve our aches and pains. Most do bring relief but not to everyone. Different people have different medical conditions allergies, reactions and needs.

I have decided to write this article from the point of view of one such person who has medical restrictions……… me.

I have LUPUS, a chronic, incurable disease in the arthritis family so I’m speaking from private experience. The views expressed here are purely my own and are unsolicited.

Tylenol Arthritis Pain is a 650 mg acetaminophen, extended release tablet, which has up to 8 hours of pain relief.
Theses tablets exceed even the dosage of Tylenol Extra Strength (500 mg) so I recommend that if you are a first time user to start by taking 1 .

I am allergic to Aspirin and all anti-inflammatory products that are used in the regular treatment of arthritis and also have a sensitive stomach. Tylenol Arthritis Pain relieves the pain without causing an upset stomach and has caused no allergic reactions to me.

Unlike some other products that can only be taken twice daily (and sometimes leaving you in pain until you can retake them) Tylenol Arthritis Pain can be taken every 8 hours if you take 2 tablets or as I sometimes do, 1 every 4 hours depending on my pain. (Consult your doctor before taking this or any other medicine. Remember I am speaking from my personal experience and in no way lay claim to be licensed to practice medicine. )

The packaging is also easy for people to open, having returned to the ‘line up the arrows and pop method’ contrary to the ‘push down, twist and lift’ methods that are used in child proof packaging, the only trouble with childproof is that it is also often arthritis proof.

Of course , Tylenol Arthritis pain is also helpful in the treatment of minor aches and pains, headaches, menstrual cramps and others.
