To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I found the pain relief to be faster and stronger than that of Advil or Tylenol. Started working within 10 minutes and all of my back pain was instantly relieved. Lasted about 6 hours. Personal preference but I do find it works better for me and will be regularly stocked in my medicine cabinet!

Pros: - easy to swallow - extra strength dose in a single capsule - VERY fast acting, so fast it surprised me, having always bought tablets or regular capsules before
Cons: - I find these gel capsules have a tendency to stick somewhere alng the way down when I swallow them, so I can end up with an almost "acid reflux" feeling while it dissolves. This is a mild annoyance, especially since it doesn't take long for it to dissolve, and the actual effect of pain killing comes quickly as a result, but it IS a downside and deserves to be mentioned. It is the only potentially bad thing I have to say though, and it may not affect everyone the same.
