Just read this on another forum I loiter on. Apparantly some batches of Nurofen have mistakenly been filled with anti psychotic tablets.

Have a read and check your medicine cabinet, folks!

I don't buy Neurofen.  No point when you can get the same thing but not branded for less than half the price.

Apparently it's Neurofen Plus (ibuprofen + codeine) which is is in question. I use it but haven't noticed any psychotic effects yet..... (now, where did I leave that machete?..........)  

Actually, they didn't say on the BBC how you are supposed to know if your batch is affected. Which seems a bit pointless.
