I always keep a bottle of aspirin in my medicine cabinet. It is indispensable. Since it's really so generic I never trouble to buy a national brand and just buy the store brand whenever I need to stock up. It's so incredibly cheap that way. I love Equate's aspirin since their bottle is super easy to open and is clear so I can see at a glance how many pills are left so I never run out. I love that I can pick these up on my normal shopping trip to Walmart. It makes stocking up so incredibly easy. These work just as well as the name brand. They claim to be coated but they still seem to take a bit of coaxing to go down and I always find it's best to have a bite of something to eat after taking them. The pain relief lasts just as long as the national brand and relief comes within an hour of taking them. Overall, I really feel there is no need to pay extra for a name brand of aspirin. These do the job just fine and are much more cost effective. I definitely recommend them.
