1419.12-322S12_C12 As a nurse, you know that everybody in the drug aisle likes to talk about more, bigger, extra, super and maximum.

All solutions are made with a single active ingredient and the fewest possible coatings and dyes. This set includes: help I can’t sleep (diphenhydramine), help I’m tired (caffeine), help I’m nauseous (meclizine), help I have a blister (hydrocolloid), help I have an aching body (ibuprofen) and help I have a headache (acetaminophen). ($30, Help)
