My wife has a bad back and regularly takes Paracetamol – and our local supermarket sells a box of 16 tablets (two days supply) for 15p – but will only sell two boxes at once. Around Christmas 2010 the shop ran out for several weeks. OK sometimes shops run out of particular stock items so at first I thought “no great deal”. However a month ago it happened again.
So do the stresses of the Christmas season mean an increase in headaches and other painful discomorts ???
