Just as good as branded
Member Name: Donf18
Advantages: cheaper and just as effective
With the sudden changes in pressure due to the ever-changing weather I tend to get quite a lot of tension headaches. Over the years I have come to trust Ibuprofen tablets, but the variance in price is just unbelievable. From the 29p ASDA brand to £2.49 for the same branded ibuprofen. Ripped off again.
At 29p for the sixteen tablets I think this is great value for money, each tablet is 200mg so should be sufficient to rid you of that nagging pain wherever it is. For a change this is not the usual Smartprice white and green packaging but a rather attractive red and grey packaging. The capsules are easy to swallow without a drink although I am aware many simply cannot take tablet/capsules without a drink.
I have found this cheap version to be just as effective as the dearer branded products, so I am amazed why people still cough up extortion rates for the same basic product. I have never had any side effects from using this cheaper brand and trust it implicitly; it has always provided me with rapid and total relief. I now carry some with me all the time just it case I need them or indeed someone else is in pain and in need of some relief.
You can take up to two in one dose but no more than 4 doses in any 24 hour period without prior medical advice and permission. I think it is advisable to follow this advice strictly since you may have underlying conditions, which need to be taken into account. In most cases the first or second dose will have in all likelihood have gotten rid of or greatly reduced your discomfort or pain so this scenario is for guidance only.
There are many versions of this on the market and they all claim to be the best at what they do. In the end a painkiller is a painkiller and if it works fine, and if it's £2 cheaper all the better.
Summary: A great product
