Saving Money and Feeling Good!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.


I’m a pretty open person, so it comes as no surprise that my medicine cabinet has a few boxes and bottles, both prescription and over the counter.  With insurance on the prescription drugs, I almost hope I can get a prescription for everything I need to take!  Yowza!  Even my vitamins add up to quite a tab! My journey to cutting costs without cutting corners has actually been a pretty good one.  I’ve learned a lot!


It started with non-prescription ibuprofen.  An NSAID, non-steroid anti inflammatory drug, is essential in maintaining a decent semblance of tolerance with my mobility issues.  Long ago I knew the name brand ibuprofen gel caps were the right choice for me, but not my pocketbook!  My research brought me to realize that the ingredient lists for the big brand and many of the store brands were almost identical.  The active ingredients are the same.  Sometimes the inactive ingredients are different, sometimes not.  Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products Ibuprofen gives me the same relief at substantially less cost.    Now, if Walgreen’s Brand will quell the swelling enough that my challenged mobility is less challenged and I can do more, imagine what it can do for a headache or achy muscles after a workout for you!  Most important to me, the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products Ibuprofen comes in liquid-gels, just like the name brand, for faster acting relief, still at a substantially lower cost.


Since I had such success with the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products Ibuprofen, I tried another Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Product, Wal-Dryl, a replacement for the brand I take for my allergies.  My experience with Wal-Dryl was even better!  I get the same active ingredients at a lower cost and the big plus – it doesn’t make me as drowsy as the name brand!  That’s got to be something in the inactive ingredients, because it does every bit as much for my allergy symptoms.


The Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products I’ve tried have been fantastic.  It’s a store-brand I trust and one I will always consider first for my OTC drug needs.  Right now, Walgreens is offering some gift card giveaways on select blogs.  That can give you an opportunity to try some of the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products on their dime!  Believe me, when you see how the Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products work just as well as the name brands and see how comparably little they cost, you’ll be a believer too!
