I recently received several free samples of the new Tylenol rapid release gels. I have taken Tylenol PM for some time now and have generally been happy with the results and when I got these, I was happy to try them out and see if they work any better or any faster than the regular Tylenol PM.
These new gels worked pretty good on mild pain and they worked well for helping me get sleepy. They worked well that is unless I took them regularly. I noticed that if took them for several nights in a row, my body developed a bit of a tolerance to them and it took me much longer to get to sleep and I didn't stay asleep as long or sleep as well.
Also, if you are experiencing anything more than mild pain, they are not as effective as prescription pain relief. For symptoms like a strong headache or migraine, which I experience at times, it is only midly effective and doesn't seem to provide any quicker relief than the regular Tylenol does.
