Oh, Yuck

Too sick to write much. But here's another Hint From Helen:

The Walgreen's copy of Claritin is Wal-itin (a liquid); its copy of Robitussin cough syrup is Wal-tussin, etc. etc. Everyone knows it saves money to buy generic. But did you know you also save money by buyng the children's versions of all these syrups? You can take the child's dose if you like, and you may find, as Helen does, that it's enough. But even if you take the adult dose (usually double the children's) it's still cheaper in the end than the equivalent medicine marketed for adults. The active ingredients are the same. (Check labels to verify, though.) And here's a bonus Helen appreciates even more than the cost savings: the stuff for children tastes a lot better!

Thanks to both of you. Elizabeth, I'm glad (for once) that it's a virtual hug! You do not want the real thing just now, I promise.
