Can't believe people still pay even £1.10 for branded Ibuprofen like Nurofen when Tesco/Asda/Morrisons own brands are about 40p.

Because for me the own brands don't work, and never have. I am sure that it is psychological, but regardless of that they still don't work!!!....

Defiantly psychological!

Psychological or not, half the normal price is definitely a good deal. This is one of those things where you pays your money and takes your choice. Voted hot.

Same ingrdients... Prettier packet... Speaks for itself.

Better still, learn to chillax and you won't need to take the tablets at all

20+ years of medical experience later and I still cannot understand why people do not take time to read the ingredients of their medication. Nurofen is simply a brand name by a single company that added pretty packaging to screw you out of your hard earned money!

The medication is simply Ibuprofen. Ask your chemist for unbranded Ibuprofen and, save a few pennies for your retirement!

Hard to believe people can be so gullible

Parents still fork out for Calpol too assuming chemist own brand paracetemol suspension is an inferior product !!

I always buy the cheap brands but I don't think people are comparing like with like here. This isn't the standard form of Ibuprofen which is available cheaply but Ibuprofen Lysine which is defined by netdoctor.co.uk as the following:
Nurofen migraine pain tablets and Nurofen tension headache tablets contain ibuprofen lysine, which is a form of ibuprofen that is more soluble than regular ibuprofen. This means that it starts to work more quickly than regular ibuprofen tablets/caplets

So, if the above is correct, then it might be worth paying the extra for quicker results.

Just my two penn'orth
