I always use generic over the counter pain meds, they work the same and cost half as much.

We don't use generic anything except for when our prescription insurance forces us to.
I buy the generic stuff all the time, it's basically made by the same company, just packaged without the name brand !! And therefore you save significant amounts of money !
We usually buy the generic. It's fine. My dd's both get raging fever's- their bodies reaction to any illness.
I do STRONGLY reccomend the DYE-FREE type (generic or regular) the red dye has some additives in it that make kids hyper.... not what a sick kid needs.
I always buy generic when possible. The active ingredients are the same.
Yep, you can. the only thing is the flavor might not be as good. I always put it in apple sauce or juice to get ds to take it but he sucks at taking meds.
ITS ALL THE SAME EVEN AT THE DOLLER STORE IT'S A FEDERAL LAW !
