In the US, it is possible to by 1000 Ibuprofen for $20.98 or $.01 per pill.
In Italy, a box of 12 costs around €4 (or €.33 each).
Today, one dollar is approximately equal to €.74.
These four bottles of Ibuprofen would cost about $1680, if bought in Italy.
That blows my mind.
Also, if you're coming to Italy, remember to bring some Ibuprofen. You sure don't want to have to buy it here.
