    When I was a young 'un,my Dady told me about using sugar to get a serious wound to clot and stop bleeding.
    I've seen it work.

  3. Super Glue! Works great for cuts...even fairly big ones if they don't gap open too wide. The stuff we use in the ER is essentially fancy Super Glue.

    What about expiration dates on the meds? At what point do they need to be rotated out? I have some old stuff in mine, and most of the pill types are consolidated in one container so I don't even know what expiration dates were on them. Any suggestions/ideas/information?

    expiration dates

    You will need to dosome homework. Temperature and humidity are the two biggest factors in meds breaking down. If in doubt throw it out. Don't poison yourself.

    How long have you had them. Most meds last about 2 years. I know it's difficult, but it's never a good idea put meds in something that does not have at least the name, expiration date, and lot number. Also preferably something with directions for appropriate use. If you have only tablets at this time there is no way to track the expiration dates. Most meds won't actually hurt anything if they have expired, they just may not work. On the other hand, some will make you quite sick if they have expired. I would discard them and start over. Perhaps use little packs of travel meds, or find something that will seal and put a piece of paper with the important info on the outside of the pack.

    Thanks for the helpful info guys. I'll be reworking the meds . . . I try to check the packs every 6 months or so and rotate out clothes for the kids, etc, but hadn't thought much about the meds. They'll go on the check/rotate list for when I'm going through the packs from now on. Thanks again!
