This is regular price but good to know. Ultimately they all contain the same ingredient so good to find them as cheap as you can.
this is their normal price so not a deal price

Ah right ok, thanks for informing me. I've never noticed them at this price before n I have to buy them regularly. My friend buys nurophen for about £3-£4 a box for the same amount that's in these n will not have it that they are the same...Crazy. Like you said it's still good to know for thosethat didn't know

Yep, amazing how much a brand can influence your headache! Tell your friend to look at the ingredient on both Nurofen and regular Ibuprofen.
Same with a lot of the meds. Just pick up the two packets and compare the active ingredients. Works out well most of the time, saves a small fortune.

Don't even need to compare ingredients. A simpler and much quicker way is to compare the product licence (PL) number on the pack.
Aren't they cheaper in home bargains? I swear I've seen a post saying they are like 16p?

The active is the same but the ingredients are different. Not that it makes Nurofen any better, the cheapos all work perfectly well for me.
They are this price in Wilko as well if thats more convenient for anybody!

Your friend is foolish with his/her own money then. What's far more worrying though is the number of people who hector their GPs into prescribing branded meds (GP's give in to these idiots when they're so busy). That's OUR money they are wasting and often in large amounts!

I know she says the liquid ones work better, I don't know, I think they are the same as these 25p ones. Yeah I don't understand why docs prescribe ibuprofen and paracetamol given they all can be picked up extremely cheaply. I am entitled to free prescriptions but wouldn't dream of getting ibuprofen on prescription. Apart from once I had a root canal and the pain was unbareable and the dentist prescribed me 600mg tablets. They worked when I took two. If I took that many in 200ml I'd have been sick.

Costs a GP/NHS £10 to write a script for this so this is one thing people can/should do to save the NHS some much needed cash

there's a PL number on all medications, usually located on the back near manufacturer details. Some things like eg anadin, anadin period pain and other specific / targeted types will have same Pl number.
