CVS is sneaky

i've hardly ever bought any over the counter drugs, i don't really get sick.   but i'm getting old, and i pulled something in my back playing softball last week.  taking ibuprofen is supposed to help, so i went to CVS to buy some.  i picked up a box and starting walking to the register, but then i saw a different one on another shelf:

the orange one is supposed to be like motrin, and the blue one is supposed to be like advil.  but they have all the same ingredients except for a dye that makes them different colors.  they are the same thing.  but one costs a buck more than the other.  sneaky CVS, sneaky.

  1. I knew they did different packaging on the same product to make it look like different name brands, but I didn't realize they'd have different prices too - geez...
