I always think Fasinex is a bit expensive:

Fasinex 0.8l - 49.55
Tribex  2.2l -  36.39

Don't forget to check the dosage rates when comparing prices - I looked up Fasinex and Tribex in NOAH, and Fasinex is 1ml per 10kgs, Tribex 1ml per 5kgs - so you'll use twice as much of the Tribex.

Also, price per ml goes down as pack size goes up.  I found the Fasinex available online for 39.99 for 0.8L, 83.02 for 2.2L.  The former pack will treat 160 x 50kg sheep = 25p/sheep, the larger pack treats 440 x 50kg sheep = 19p/sheep.

That 2.2L of Tribex treats 220 x 50kgs sheep, at a cost of 17p/sheep.

So I agree that the Fasinex is more expensive - but 12% more, not the nearly 400% your figures suggested!
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
