Medicine and Medicines - Drugs on the Market

What medicines are out there on the market, and how much do they cost? Is your packet of brand name pain killer any better than the supermarket version, or does it just come in a pretty coloured box? Unfortunately we can only answer a few of these questions, but this Medicine section of Whatprice does take a look at drug prices and also gives you some helpul advice about different types of drugs.

We do not offer any professional medical advice and you should always consult your Doctor if you have any medical concerns.
