I searched for anything relating to this and found nothing so here goes...

I was at the pharmacy in my local Super Walmart and noticed this 88 cent section. Its four feet wide and houses a wide array of health products, all for only eighty eighty cents each. For the most part it looks like the stuff you would find at the dollar store but what peaked my interest was that fact that it was in the aisle with pain relievers and sat right across from Walmart's own brand of products at nearly $3 a piece. Interesting...

The short list-

Pain Relievers (Ibuprofen (Advil), Acetaminophen (Tylenol) & Aspirin)
Pain Relief PM (Tylenol PM)
Sinus Congestion & Pain (Advil Sinus)
Sleep Aid (Nytol)
Antacid Tablets (Rolaids)
Tussin Chest Congestion (Robitussin)
Gas Relief (GasX)
Laxative (Ex-lax)
Anti-Diarrheal (Imodium)
Allergy Relief (Benadryl)
Nasal Spray (Afrin)
Daytime & Nitetime cold/flu relief (NyQuil)
Day & Night Cold Relief (Tylenol Day & Night)
Mucus Relief (Mucinex)
Chap-Ice (Chap-stick)
Multi-Vitamins (Complete, Children s, Men's, Women's, 50+ & Prenatal)
Vitamins (A&D, B, C, E, probiotic, Calcium, Echinacea, Fish Oil, Red Wine Complex, Glacosamine & Lutein)
Plastic Bandages (Band-Aids)
Hydrocortisone Anti-itch Cream (Cortizone-10)
Hemorrhoidal Ointment (Preparation H)
Pro-Ex Antifungal Cream (Lotrimin)
Intimate Wipes (feminine Cleansing)
Fresh Times (Maxi-Pads)
Femtex (Kotex)
Warm Touch (K-Y)
First Signal Pregnancy Test (First Response)

Same here...my Walmart has had this set up for months and it doesn't look like it has been touched much. Mostly dollar-store quality items...did pick up a tube of cortisone cream though a few days ago and seems to do the job.

.. wonder how much of the stuff is made in China. Lately most bargain first-aid products I see are made in China. And if you demand made-in-U.S. -- don't get Band-Aid brand -- they are made in Brazil!

I'm sure the medical products like bandages are cheap china quality, but when it comes to medicine, it's all the same, regulated by the FDA and made here (or it better be), so Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, Asprin, etc., etc are all the same, whether you pay 88 cents or 100 dollars.

Not always true. Sure i would trust generic tylenol, but there are some medicines where you cannot go with generics. Generic Levothyroxin (Sythnroid) does NOT work for many people. And being "regulated by the FDA" has no meaning anymore.

He's just saying that brand name drugs and generic drugs are not exactly the same thing. Same concept with Tylenol brand and Walmart brands. They can all be made of the same thing, but they may not have the same efficacy.

Yeah - I bought a tube several weeks ago and think it is great for 88 cents!

May be this article will help you understand generic drugs better.

they are both generics, and they are both medicine. im sure this generic stuff works okay, but wanted to clarify that not all generics are the same as the brand stuff just b/c "they are regulated by the fda."
