CVS is sneaky

I’ve hardly ever bought any over the counter drugs, I don’t really get sick.   But I’m getting old, and I pulled something in my back playing softball last week.  Taking ibuprofen is supposed to help, so I went to CVS to buy some.  I picked up a box and starting walking to the register, but then I saw a different one on another shelf:

The orange one is supposed to be like Motrin, and the blue one is supposed to be like Advil.  But they have all the same ingredients except for a dye that makes them different colors.  They are the same thing.  But one costs a buck more than the other.  Sneaky CVS, sneaky.
