I have had an awful cold this week and went to check out what was available to make me feel better.
I went into Wilkinsons and checked out all the products and what they contain and found that their own brand Max Strength Sinus relief capsules were only 97p for 16 capsules and contain exactly the same ingredients in the same quantities as the branded max strength cold products (Lemsip max/ Benylin Max).
They all contain Paracetamol 500mg, caffeine 25mg and phenylephrine HCl 6.1mg However the wilko sinus relief are 97p compared to about £2.50/£3 for the branded products.
I also noticed that their own brand cold and flu relief product was identical in all but title and yet costs 17p more than the sinus relief???
I know people will say it is an inferior product as it is stores own so it will be a lower quality, but with medicine this cannot be the case they must be of an equivalent quality and also pass rigorous inspection to gain a product licence from the MHRA.
I have found this product very effective at relieving my stuffed up nose and other cold symptoms this week.
