We all know that the active ingredient in these is the same as that major brand we always hear about on the TV, so we know it works. However, the reason I give this five stars is not only the cost per pill, but also the fact that it comes in a bottle. I have searched every store in my area, and no one, not even the generic Equate brand, sells them in bottles anymore. Really?? Who wants to struggle and strain to try to open a blister pack to get one lousy pill when they're already trying to hold back the torrent of whatever dish they ate last night that just didn't sit well, and any extra strain might breach the dam, creating a cascade of poo and tears. You don't want that. Get this bottle, so you can easily open it up and get that sweet relief you're looking for!
