OOT Bag first aid kit question

Recommended Posts

I have a question about puting OTC pills in the first aid kits. I priced out individual packets of pills and they are SUPER expensive and I'm a budget bride. Also in Canada so shipping kicks my butt. Would it be ok to just get large bottles of pills and put them into little baggies along with direction cards and labels? Anyone coming would know me really well so obviously know I'm not trying to poison them. I think I saw a couple other brides do this and it seems much more economical. I'd like to put in aspirin, antacids, an anti-constipation and an anti-diarreal. About 8 of each (4 per person). Oh, and they would be going into the dollar store hard case first aid kits with other cool stuff. Thanks.

I have also read about people doing this, and I think it's a great way to save money. I would say make sure you add the labels, but most importantly maybe you should check with customs or the airline you are traveling on. Because I know I did read somewhere here that all OTC medications had to be in their original packages. You just want to make sure they don't confiscate them. That would not be good. :o(

I think that sounds like a great idea! I haven't priced out the individual packets yet for mine, but if they are too expensive I had considered going that route. I agree with MissBubbles though, you might want to check and make sure they won't be confiscated.

Thanks. 

 

What I could do for customs is just leave them in their big bottles and divy them up once I get to Mexico and am assembling the bags. That way no customs worries. But for sure I will add labels to the baggies.

Ahh, now that is a terrific idea!!.. I don't know why I didn't think of that!.. With doing that you shouldn't have any problems at all.
