A month ago I strained a muscle in my lower back moving plants from the greenhouses to the shop. It's not far, but when one has to do this repeatedly, it can be painful. I consulted my sister Pauline, who is a triage nurse for a busy doctors office. Her recommendation was to rest, relax and take a pain reliever and anti- inflammatory medicine. Walgreens is on my way home, so I stopped there to shop the pain relief aisle. I chose one of Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products, Ibuprofen Softgels Liquid Filled Capsules.
I usually choose the name brand, but after talking to the pharmacist, I took the Walgreens brand because it was way cheaper than the other. Steve told me the ingredients are exactly the same as other national brands and recommended the Softgels for quick relief. Over the counter medication can be expensive and I appreciated the very good price I paid for the Health and Wellness Brand Product from Walgreens.
My purchase also supports the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™ . The Way to Well fund will contribute up to $3 million annually to The Way to Well Fund™. Walgreens has also partnered with The National Urban League Health and Wellness Tour to bring free health tests and other preventative wellness services to our local communities through preventive health tests and vouchers from select stores.

My muscle strain has eased and I can thank Walgreens Ibuprofen softgels. I'm happy with the pain relief and the price. But I am truly thankful for the kind and helpful pharmacist at my local store, who took the time to talk to me about what was available, correct dosages and uses of the product. Thank you Steve! You helped me feel better!
