That's it for me as well, covers the bases nicely though.
Ibuprofen, vitamin c, multivitamin, and a couple Pseudafed. Goes in one of those little earplug clamshell cases with a couple cotton balls, and that gets tossed in a pouch in my bag.
Due to my particular recipe of hemophilia, I cannot have aspirin or ibuprofen, so I use the white plastic cylindrical travel vials you see in check-out lanes, remove the labels and build my own load-out of diphenhydramine, generic rapid-release acetaminophen and pepto capsules.
I carry OTC Meds but purely for my use only;
Ibuprofen + Codeine
And the pain meds are all for my buggered up hand not because I like pills!
In my kit right now
I try to carry
Some generic allergy pill (like cetirizine)
Lomudal allergy eyedrops
Samarin (for digestion problems, heartburn)
Activated carbon pills (absorbs toxins and bacteria, was my best friend on a trip to Indonesia a long time ago, carried it since)
Försvarets hudsalva (Swedish Armed Forces skin lotion, made from tallow, peanut oil and wax and is incredibly useful, not only on dry/sore skin but can even be used for frying and as ski wax)
I carry regular OTC stuff in my cars, which are always close by. (Also in my office). On me, no I do not carry any thing, maybe I should.
How big is this thing?
Grunt candy---I use Aleve.
i have a fob on my keychain with (this has come in handy quite a few times at work, whether it was me or someone else who needed something):
ibuprofen (x 2)
aspirin (x 2)
claritin (x 1)
i have the following in a folca container in my edc fak (this, as well, has come in handy at work; a co-worker needed some allergy meds and i was happy to be of help):
allergy meds (generic version of benadryl)
non-drowsy allergy meds (claritin)
anti-diarrhea meds (generic version of imodium)
dramamine (i only need this for sea-sickness, but i'm never without it)
sinus meds (generic brand)
i also keep a container of these same meds in the fak in my truck.
All for personal use, as the UK has some fairly strict rules as to who can issue meds, OTC or otherwise, to casualties/patients, without requiring the issuer to possess certain licences and qualifications.
Immodium instants (An loperamide-based anti-diarrhoea treatment. No water required, dissolves in the mouth).
Nurofen meltlets (An ibuprofen-based pain killer and anti-inflamatory, no water required, dissolves in the mouth).
Brulidine cream (combo Antiseptic/Antibacterial cream for external application to small wounds).
AfterBite pen (Antihistamine insect bite relief).
Optrex Actimist (Witch Hazel-based spray for the short-term relief of irritated or tired eyes; the one I have has since been discontinued, there are now three version of this stuff, and I have to get a new one next year, as the current one will be out of date by then!)
There are other meds I carry as a matter of course, but as those are prescribed for me, I won't list 'em here
Aside from recent prescriptions, I carry Advil, Tylenol, aspirin, sudafed (the real stuff, not PE), Imodium, a couple topicals, and tums. Several came in a kit, and I replace what I use. The pain killers and sudafed, I buy in bulk and just keep a handful of them in a little plastic tube from its tactical.
I've used them all in the bush with the exception of Imodium. Advil is a OTC NSAID.
I've got ibuprofen and paracetamol in my EDC backpack, aspirin in med kit. Other than that not much.
Do extra strong mints count ? I am on Lansoprazole for acid but just occasionally if I eat late a couple of mints help, other than that just Paracetamol and Ibuprofen.
Mints work I carry a tin of Altoids Smalls with me most of the time too
we should all carry mints.
you never know when that stanky breath will kick in. or when you'll meet someone who might need one, too.
I prefer chewing gum
