I have found the pharmacy brand, ie; Walgreens, Walmart, CVS etc.. Are just as good quality for a third of the price!

@AARPTeri- I am concerned that this may be a potentially dangerous discussion, and just as bad as Big Pharma's advertisements of all of their products. You too can have a wonderful life, if you just take their pills! Just because something works well for one person, it may not work as well for another, and it may have ingredients that have a negative interaction with other things they're taking, and/or other conditions they have.

I use Aleve for most of my aches and pains. May not be so easy on the stomach, but it works.
