Stocking Your Home Medicine Kit

I’m pretty sure that most of us have our own medicine kit at home. I cannot stress enough having your own first aid kit because it is really important especially for emergency cases. We have our own home medicine kit but there was a time when my son had a fever and when I checked the fridge, our Paracetamol syrup is only good for two intakes. My husband was out of the country and I don’t want to bring my son to the drugstore at masama na nga pakiramadam. Good thing that my friend volunteered to buy the medicine for me.

And because of that, I really make sure that I have stock of vitamins and medicines at home. One friend even suggested, have at least two bottles of Paracetamol so I don’t need to go out anymore if ever maubusan. Di bale na maexpire kaysa mamoblema ko sa pagbili at maghanap ng open na pharmacy.

I’m not saying that you need to buy all the vitamins or medicines that you think you might need. In my opinion, just buy those vitamins and medicines that you most likely use in daily basis or emergency cases.

What inside my home medicine kit? 

I have two boxes of medicine kit, one is for oral medicines and one for topical medicines and wound care supplies. Some medicines are inside the fridge. :)

1. Pain medications
2. Fever medications and fever pads
3. Stomach medications
4. Antihistamine medications
5. Decongestants for colds
6. Cough Medicine
7. My medicine for psoriasis
8. Antiseptic Solutions
9. Topical creams or ointments for burns, itching, insect bites.
10. Wound Care Supplies

Don’t forget to check your medicine kits regularly. Always check the expiration date, throw expired products and replace it. My husband has his own medicine kit too that he always brings whenever he travels. The company nurse is the one who put the medicines, he just needs to return it after the trip. Whenever we travel, I also bring medicines, I just put it in a pouch.

Anyway, if you are looking for affordable vitamins or medicines that you can put in your kit. Check the following products of United Home, these are pre-natal medicine, non-acidic vitamin, fever and pain medication and cough medication.

How about you what is inside your medicine kit?


  1. Our medicine kit only consists for fever, colds and pain relievers. Planning to buy Ceetab Premium since lately madalas magkalagnat si hubby. He needs to boost his immune system. Thanks for sharing!

  2. We have a first aid kit at home, and a more compact version that we carry around when we leave the house. Ferrous would be nice to add in the kit kasi I'm always losing sleep because of work.

  3. Meds for cough, colds, fever, and diarrhea, skin cream, alchohol, gauze and iodine. I have to buy vitamin c for me and hubby so that will be inside our medicine kit soon

  4. Woah, P1.50 per pc, not bad. It's a good thing to check medicine kits regularly, minsan kasi, we get ill, tapos expired na pala.

  5. I'm really blessed because there's like 4-5 big drugstores (including Mercury Drug, Generics, and Generika) and then another 5 small, neighbourhood pharmacies in our immediate vicinity. I can't run out of cetirizine because both my son and I have allergies!

  6. I'll look for that non acidic Vit.C, I need it

  7. I have to agree with you that every household should have a medicine kit. We have a cabinet full of medicines from antibiotics, nebules, cough syrup and all sorts. I don't want to go out everytime my kids needs to take medicines because being sick is already stressful.

  8. We have a regular stock of cold and flu medicines at home.

  9. At home, we also have medicine for our immediate need just in case any member of my family get sick. Thanks for sharing your list, I will consider some of it. It is essential to every family to have this medicine list.

  10. same here I always have a stock of medicine at home and in m bag in case of emergency

  11. Great sharing! While I keep a similar medicine kit at home, paracetemol is consumed much faster than the other medicine.
