I think you pay extra for the shiny pack and big red letters.

In that case I'm surprised it's not a lot more then.

Maybe they should charge £9.99, but throw in a free gift like a phaser or somesuch :)

And only 200mg so you have to go to the bother of taking two. These things matter when you're not well. :(

I used to avoid all kinds of pills and medication, and I still believe that sleep is the best fix. But if you want to get on with your life, a couple of Ibuprofen can work wonders

Power of a brand means you can wrack up teh price because people follow what they know, I think that Ibuprofen was originally marketed as Nurofen. I think that when the patent expired different versions could be sold including Ibuprofen.
