    I have an Altoids tin with tylenol, antacid, decongestant, cotton swabs, bandages, and a backup dose of my daily meds. I keep it in my EDC pocket organizer which stays in my backpack which stays with me. I also have extra lip balm and oral anesthetic in the backpack as well.

    Anesthetic. Google "Kanka brush"; I keep one of those around me just about all the time. I really, really hate when you've bitten the inside of your mouth and you just about can't eat without help.

    Response to an old post, but it might help someone. Check Meiho Fly box, model M62-L. They have 10 compartments that make lugging OTC a snap. You can also look for Pill box.

    I'm not going to list the prescription meds I have to take, but here's a snapshot of them, and the containers that I carry them in, for reference and ideas for you all.

    The yellow sectional container is a simple pill box from Boots (a chain store pharmacy outlet in the UK). I stick a full days meds in each section, for a total of four days carried prescription meds doses, max.

    This then gets stuck in an old top-opening (a one-piece injection moulded case, the lid hinging over from the left in the photo) military morphine auto-injector carry case (surplus case only, no morphine auto-injector), which then secures my yellow meds box against accidental opening and loss of the meds.

    The labels were printed off on translucent self-adhesive stickers on my inkjet printer (Deskjet 1510), and cut to shape the old fashioned way ;)

    The meds you see are eight pills in total, four with breakfast, four before I hit the sack. Two doses are duplicated each day, as you can see.

    The Altoids Smalls case is there for scale ;)

    I usually carry some otc stuff in my jacket and on my person. I usually keep some advil, excedrin, pepto, anti-diarrheal, aspirin, benadryl, and a few other things. I also keep some generic dayquil and claritin, just in case. I keep a small altoids tin in my pocket that has most of that same stuff in it, just in case I was to get separated from my jacket or forget to put it in my jacket pocket if I switched jackets. It's redudant but I'm ok with having plenty of stuff in case other people need some of it. The altoids tin has some other things as well and it's small and easy to carry so I don't mind it.

    ASA, tylenol, Motrin, reactine, and tylenol back pain. All in original packaging in the car FAK. (for numerous reasons the Tylenol back pain usually goes fastest. FML)
