  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome)
  • side effects
    Mild (Stomach upset)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: I only use Tylenol when I need it BADLY! I depend more on my prescription medications than I do Tylenol because it can cause liver damage if taken to much to often. When I do take it, it does help with the swelling and the pain in my feet, hips, back. It doesn't take all the pain away, but it makes the pain tolerable.
Cost: < $25 monthly
