Whenever I can, I buy generic over-the-counter cold meds, muscle rubs, cough drops and stomach ache remedies. My local drugstore has their own brand. I’ve found absolutely no difference between name brand cough syrup and Drug Mart cough syrup other than the packaging.
I usually stock up on these items once every three months. That way, when my daughter tells me that she has a headache, I can point to the kitchen cupboard and go back to watching Netflix.
I bought some muscle rub for $4 dollars the other day, instead of paying $9 for the “real” stuff.
It smells like Pepto, but it does an amazing job of helping with my muscle pain/twitching.
If you haven’t been using generic meds, give it a try at least once. You’ll save money, which is what we strive to do here on this blog.
