    I've been Money Tipped!
    yes i noticed this I always buy the 20p/25p paracetamol for an elderly gent I visit and last time in Sainsbirys all the 25p ones had vanished and they were all 50p but still in the blue packet which is 20p in Savers.

    I asked at the pharmacy and she told me the 25p ones were behind the counter now!!!! ha! So I asked for some and she reached towards an empty shelf and said O'h dear we've run out.


    I said O'h I'll g to Waitrose now on then and get a free coffee and cheaper Paracetamol! She was not a happy bunny. It's amazing now that supermarkets are stopping value ranges Waitrose can compete!! I know where I'd rather shop.

    Yes! I ended up asking in Morrisons when they stopped doing theirs, and was just told they'd stopped doing them. I get Panadol Extra now, although yes it's over £2 a pack!

  • Hi, found this whilst searching online to try to find out why I can't find own brand Paracetamol, Aspirin and Caffeine combo tablets. Asda stopped selling them at the beginning of the year, I found the in Waitrose but now they've stopped. Any ideas why, and if there's anywhere I can get cheaper ones than Anadin?

    Morrisons are now selling their own brand again, I bought a 16 pack, pretty sure it was less than a quid.

    They're called "Pain control extra" and they're in a red box.

    Just remembered that Poundstretcher are selling Paracetamol, Aspirin and Caffeine combo tablets at 16 for 50p. As with a lot of things seems to be a bit hit and miss as to whether they have them.
