Are you paying too much for your medicine? Customer goes viral after ‘exposing’ pharmaceutical brand rip off : Daily Record.

Rob Lloyd discovered that branded and own make supermarket drugs were made in the same factory but were both drastically different in price.

A man has gone viral on Facebook with a post slamming the pharmaceutical industry as “a huge rip off”.

Rob Lloyd (age and area), took to the social media site to share his discovery that branded and own make supermarket drugs are often made in the same factory but sold at massively different prices.

He claims he was able to make the startling discovery thanks to advice from a TV show.

Alongside a picture featuring two different boxes of cold and flu tablets, he explains: “Saw this on TV yesterday how the pharmaceutical industry is a huge rip off.

“Martin Lewis said to look out for the PL number on the side of drug packaging. So looked for myself in Asda, the pictured tablets are Sudafed Cold & Flu and Asda’s own Cold & Flu, both with the same PL number so both made in the same factory but £3 difference in price.

“Goes to show how we are being ripped off. Please Share.”
