I've often heard about people who, when visiting others at home, go snooping into their host's medicine cabinet. I've never done that in real life, but I guess this thread is the cyber version of that. I'm just curious.


As for me, I rarely go through my medicine cabinet and reorganize and toss stuff, so most of my stuff is pretty old or getting old. I did start today, so I threw out some stuff that's really old or unused.

What I still have:

Tom's of Maine deodorant
Crystal stick deodorant
about 10 different kinds of cold and cough medicine, including plain Benadryl
band-aids
Neosporin
Anti-diarrhea tablets (generic for Imodium)
two bottles of Paregoric, which I don't think is even made anymore. My parents gave me some of theirs a long time ago; this was I think before Imodium was introduced
ibuprofen (generic for Advil)
naproxen sodium (generic for Aleve)
Tylenol (I don't use it, my father insisted on giving it to me; I don't know why, it has never worked for me)
nasal spray
Breathe-Rite nasal strips
2 bottles of cough syrup: One prescription because it contains codeine and one Robitussin I got several years ago and I don't use because it tastes vile
isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
hydrogen peroxide
sunscreen (which I should probably toss as it's a little old)
several different kinds of hair styling products
several first aid sterile gauze pads which my father the doctor insisted I should have
Synthroid (hormone supplement for my thyroid since it doesn't produce enough naturally)
Birth control pills
anti-gas pills (I drink a lot of Diet Dr. Pepper)

generic for Compazine from when I had the stomach flu (which is getting old but I don't want to throw it out just yet)

Belladonna prescribed by my doctor several years ago when I was having severe cramping, nausea and vomiting during my periods
Tums

I don't know how I managed to cram all of that in, but there was more I threw out.


Anything that I'm missing that you think I should add?

In mine rests:

A "sleep aid" (hint, it can be turned on, and is not a toothbrush)
Several "massage oils" meant for couples
Foot cream
And ten glow in the dark toothbrushes

But, we can make. . . arrangements, right?

I don't have one and don't know all of what's in my girlfriend's. The only thing that I have at the moment that would be in the cabinet is wart remover (gross I know lol). Also maybe my vitamins but I don't know people that put those there.

It's empty! A new one was recently installed (the whole full-bathroom has been under renovation) and nothing has been put in it yet since much more work needs to be done. In the old one though, nothing of mine was in it. There was floss, toothpaste, deodorant, different kinds of sprays for hair, leave-in conditioner, nail polish, hair bows, and temporary hair dye is what I can remember.

I'm surprised by all the people that store vitamins and some other medication in their medicine cabinets. It's not recommended because they should all be stored in a cool dry place. The hot, humid, moisture filled environment of the bathroom can decrease their effectiveness.

That's why I keep all of my dead bodies out of the bathroom. Those get stored in the freezer.

Good tip, I was wondering why my corpses were getting all moldy. Thanks Heather.

Medicine cabinet? I don't have one..

But things that would be in a medicine cabinet include: multivitamins, paracetamol, ibuprofen, night nurse, plasters, antiseptic cream, vapour rub, health salts & tonnes of allergy relief tablets.
