BOGO Free OTC Medicine Sale at Walgreen’s (Use up your FSA!)

I ran to Walgreen’s, tonight, to pick up more Zyrtec-D. Its rather discouraging that the largest package of 12 hour medication, comes in packages of 24 count. I’d like to buy a 30 day supply, with my signature, for Sudafed. I’d like to only have to go to a pharmacy, surrounded by ill people, once a month. That’s only one time, a month, to be surrounded by other people’s germs.

~thank.you.very.much~

I have almost switched from Ibuprofen liquid gels to these small Walgreen’s generic caplets. Its about stomach space.

So, tonight, as I looked for a new bottle, I noticed that Walgreen’s generic medication is catered to a design/look of the particular named brand, that it sits next to..

The small brown caplets resemble Advil and are next to that particular type of Advil.

They are on sale.

500 count bottle is $12.99 and BOGO Free!

But there was only one bottle. I’ve had this problem at Walgreen’s before.

A couple of shelves, above this, was the same generic, in size and shape.. but in Orange.. the generic of the Motrin IB.

Hopefully, the yellow dye doesn’t kill me, anymore than the carnauba wax, silica gel, corn starch, and all the other crap on the label.

I found this sale, after the more amazing sale, on Guaifenesin.

Guaifenesin is the wonder pill of congestion. I used to call it the “Navy Wonder Blue Pill,” in the 1990’s. The Mucinex commercials, with the monsters are pretty appropriate, too.

Anyway, the 240 count bottle of Guaifenesin is on sale for $14.99. The January Super-Saver coupon book has a $2 coupon, too.

Its the same price to get it combined with Dextromethorphan (the cough suppressant in Robitussin,) Phenylephrine (the ingredient, from Contac, that replaced Sudafed, in OTC cold medicines, that you can still buy on the shelf, directly,) and Pseudophedrine (Sudafed) in a smaller quantity.

I also picked up Walgreen’s Acetaminophen Rapid Release Gelcaps (Generic Tylenol)BOGO, 150 count $7.99.

Sale is good through January 3rd!

This would be a great way to use up any money left over in your Medical FSA Accounts. Mine has been depleted since last summer..
