Over the Counter Medications
With COVID-19 we have all found ourselves confined to our homes for the last few months. Those of you who know me, know that I hate, hate, hate housework. I usually do just enough to keep our home livable—monthly cleaning at best. But, with all this time on my hands, I have been moved to clean out cabinets. I started in the kitchen (found a bunch of outdated chips and crackers as well as several cans that needed to be tossed).
But then, I tackled the bathrooms. I hadn’t realized (even as a nurse) how old some of our over the counter medications (OTC) had become. We didn’t have to rent a dumpster but it did result in quite a bit of extra garbage on my cleaning/clearing out days. I started wondering how long we should
actually keep over the counter medications past their
I did some research and came up with the following for how long we should keep over the counter medications and this is what I found.
Per Dr. Harold Silverman, Pharm.D., author of The Pill Book:
Tylenol, Advil, and Motrin: up to 3 months past expiration but don’t expect them to work as well
Tums and Rolaids: up to 2 years past expiration. These don’t break down like other meds
Prilosec, Prevacid, and other OTC proton-pump inhibitors (PPI): are best taken by the expiration date
Mucinex, Dayquil, and other OTC cough remedies: up to 3 months past expiration
Sleep aids like Unisom or melatonin: up to 3 months
I found this information helpful and hope you do too. Stay safe and stay in love with God.
How to Avoid Foggy Glasses with Face Masks
Washing the spectacles with soapy water leaves behind a thin surfactant film that reduces this surface tension and causes the water molecules to spread out evenly into a transparent layer. This ‘surfactant effect’ is widely utilized to prevent misting of surfaces in many everyday situations. Antifogging solutions used for scuba masks or ski goggles also accomplish this.
Another tactic is to consider the fit of your face mask, to prevent your exhaled breath from reaching your glasses. An easy hack is to place a folded tissue between your mouth and the mask. The tissue will absorb the warm, moist air, preventing it from reaching your glasses. Also, make sure the top of your mask is tight and the bottom looser, to help direct your exhaled breath away from your eyes.
On the lighter side: if your glasses fog up while wearing a face mask, you may be eligible for condensation! 😁
