    The own brand stuff will be cheap compared to branded medication, whilst still being the same drug. Voted for Boots.

    I believe that paracetamol is a homogeneous good so any price differences is due to branding. I'd choose the best value one

    I didn't vote because it depends. For example, you can have paracetamol with a caffeinated coating, so that absorption of the compounds is accelerated (no idea how it works, just going off what I know :P )
