Do you use generic medicines like tylenol, baby products, etc.?

I have used generic products like baby tylenol, tylenol for me, advil for me, etc....where I live the drugstore wants like $3-4 for name brand products and I can't afford all that all the time...the generic works just as well I think.

  • Oftentimes generic medicine is manufactured by the SAME company marketing the name brand...

  • Oh yes, I use the generic medicines. If you compare the ingredients they are always the same. Same medicine, less money - no contest.

  • Yes. Generic is just as good. Same product, same ingredients, different names on the label.

  • Yep, I always use generic. They have to have the same ingredients, plus they're cheaper.

  • I usually buy generic, unless somehow the coupons I have make the "real" stuff cheaper than the generic.
