MISLABLED AS A GLUTEN-FREE PRODUCT!
I am VERY disappointed with the (mis)labeling and marketing for this product. My daughter is celiac, and thus, cannot consume any gluten. This product was labeled "gluten free" in the online product description, but when I contacted the number on the bottle (the manufacturer, Equate) in an attempt to be thorough, I was told that the product is NOT gluten free, and therefore is definitely NOT safe for someone with celiac, or a gluten intolerance/sensitivity for that matter. Furthermore, they informed us that they cannot control how the product is marketed...I've never written a review for a product before, but I am disturbed that a product was mislabeled in such a negligent way.

My husband & I are 61 & 60 yrs. old. We have many chronic conditions that leave us with a lot of daily pain. This is the only medication we take for All our pain every day!

You should never have to deal with that kind of chronic pain, Janet. We're so glad that the Equate Extra Strength Acetaminophen Caplets help you and your husband feel better.

Will continue to buy

These are just as good as name brands I think. Cheaper and does the same job on pain. I bought Tylenol for years and my son had bought some of these and I have arthritis so took one and it helped just loke the name brands.

Only thing that works on my aches and pains.

This product works well on just about any kind of pain. I have been using it for years. Nothing else, not even prescription, beats it. The best part is that it never causes stomach upset, like all prescription pain relievers do to me.

What a Value

Equate Extra Strength Acetaminophen twin pack is such a value! This pain reliever/fever reducer contains no aspirin which is good to have on hand whenever the pain hits. Fast acting and Easy to swallow and easy to take while on the go and gentle on your stomach too. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

great boundle

I love these, they work fast or at least for me they do i can say that for me they work faster and better then more expensive brands,and you get alot for less. A lot of people go for brand names but these work just as good for a lot cheaper. Give them a try and i im sure you will be buying them more often.
