I will admit thought that as I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten more aches and pains.  I guess that’s to be expected as joints wear out and my weight gets higher resulting in more stress on  my body.  But that’s a small price to pay for having the absolute joy of getting to be on this earth this long.

I am able to manage my pain with over-the-counter (OTC) drugs like Ibuprophen for now, but I do take large quantities of it.  It takes 3 of Walgreens Ibuprofen 200 mg Caplets Caplets twice to three times a day to manage my paid, so a bottle doesn’t last long.  The hubby has a bad back that surgery wasn’t able to fix, so he gets into them as well.  At $2 a bottle savings over Motrin, it adds up.  Plus, all of Walgreens’store  brands have similar savings so when they work as well as the major brands, we use them.

I’m glad that Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products are available for the daily medicines I need and I suppose I should save up the difference angiveawaysd do something fun with it, but at my age, I’d probably be better to save it up for a hip replacement!  I do love that if I need it, I can have a Walgreens pharmacist’s assistance in selecting the perfect product for me and I’m not worried about taking their store brand because store brands have to include the same active ingredients as national brands.  Plus, if for some reason their brand doesn’t work for me, they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so I’m never out any money for trying them.
