Home Medicine Chest

Remember that you can treat many minor ailments such as colds, coughs and indigestion by keeping a well-stocked medicine cabinet at home. We suggest you keep the following:

  • Paracetamol and aspirin (children under 16 and people with asthma should not take aspirin)
  • Sunburn treatment (for example, calamine)
  • Mild laxatives
  • Anti-diarrhoeal medicines
  • Rehydration mixture
  • Indigestion remedy (for example, antacids)
  • Travel sickness tablets
  • Tweezers and sharp scissors
  • Sunscreen – SPF15 or higher
  • A thermometer
  • Plasters, non-absorbent cotton wool, elastic bandages and dressings.

Remember:

  • Keep the medicine chest in a secure, locked place, out of reach of small children.
  • Always read the instructions and use the suggested dose
  • Watch expiry dates – don’t keep or use medicines past their sell-by date
  • Take all unwanted and out-of-date medicines back to the pharmacy

We also can provide further information on self-care – please take the relevant information from our waiting room.
