Ibuprofen

Thursday, 13 November 2003 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m starting to wonder if the Brits know something about ibuprofen that they have hidden from us in the US. You’re familiar with ibuprofen? It’s various forms being Motrin, Advil and so forth? Go to Sam’s Club or Target, buy it in a bottle with 500 pills? At Tesco if you want more than 8 pills you have to ask for them at the pharmacy. They’ll then hand you a package with sixteen 200 mg tablets. That’s the most they have in one pack as far as I can tell. They come nicely protected in those push out one at a time foil covered dividers. They take their ibuprofen very seriously!

Other things I have had to ask for from behind the pharmacy counter:

hydrogen peroxide
cold medicines
Compound-W
