Daily medicine goes in the plastic daily use boxes that hold one days worth, my insulin goes in the fridge.....

We do the same albeit with somewhat smaller tackle boxes one of whch is a fairly simple first aid kit, and one of which is a reasonably elaborate trama/surgical kit. We also have a medicine chest aboard that has items specifically oriented for minor injuries and illnesses particular to being on the water. Everything gets checked and replaced or refreshed as necessaty in our spring outfitting. Certain anti-biotics, for example, do have expiration dates that should be observed and I have been given to understand that some pain medications can become toxic after their expiration dates and should not be used. One of our neighbors is a physician and helped us fit out these kits and we took the Red Cross first aid classes for some training.
