Would you splurge on name brand cold medicine or just buy the generic?

Splurge. My insurance pays for everything. I never use up all the allotted cash.

Me too, if the name brand is on sale and I have a coupon, I will go with that, if not its generic.

It depends on the situation sometimes I have a coupon which makes it either less than store brand or the same or certian things like Claritin doesn't work as well as the generic
