I carry around aspirin in case I get chest tightness or tingling. As I'm getting older I want to be proactive about what can happen. Aspirin could have been the saving factor in my neighbors life as he suffered from a heart attack.

Does anyone have a convenient place to carry these pills on themselves so they won't become damaged or lost?

    The Swedes carry three with them to chew in case of a heart attack.

    They do not keep forever when exposed to air so need to be in a container.

    I got  a (free) 'man bag' when in Japan over 12 years ago and hardly ever leave home without it. Plenty of pockets for a container. I also keep my GTN spray in it as well as some hand cleanser, some pens and some paper!

    You can carry them in a glasses case if you wear them. Or you can buy a pill carrier that hangs on a chain around your neck, it's a small tube that you can easily fit 4/5 pills in.

    Hi john, I saw a pill box (enough for 2) that you can attach to a key ring.  Check your pharmacy.
