…when you’re sneezing, wheezing, and coughing.
The closest pharmacy to my office is a CVS. The closest pharmacy to my apartment is a Walgreens. Over the last few days, I’ve bought cold medication from both… but when I opened the fresh pack of Walgreens’ Multi-Symptom Cold Caplets, I noticed something odd.
The caplets looked just like the CVS Multi-Symptom Cold Caplets I’d been taking for the last couple of days. A few seconds of research… and it’s because they are.
Yep, the two big “competitors” in the pharmacy/convenience space source their generic medication from the same place — something called LNK International on Long Island.
Now I’ll have to start looking at their other brands to see just how little difference there really is…
…once I get back out of bed, which is where I’m going now.
