Top Products That 3 Out of 5 Doctors REALLY Recommend You Have In Your Medicine Cabinet

Ever wonder which medicines the doctors themselves use to treat their own colds, flu, upset stomach, headaches and other minor aches & pains?

Here's what you should really have in your medicine cabinet

In a survey of 5 leading female doctors in the U.S, these doctors had very similar opinions regarding the best products on the market.

Moreover, 3 out of 5 of them used the exact same products!

Do you use these?…

  • Sudafed
  • Tylenol
  • Ibuprofen
  • Aspirin
  • Centrum multivitamins
  • Calcium citrate

In an article by Sally Squires (O Magazine) entitled “I’ll Have What She’s Having… 5 Women Doctors Let Us Peek Into Their Medicine Cabinets”, I found it interesting to see some of the products that doctors themselves use to treat everyday colds, flu, stomach upset, headaches, and other minor aches & pains.

I figure, if it’s good enough for people “in the know” such as women who are doctors themselves, then it’s certainly worth considering for my family!

Here are some of the products found inside these doctors’ medicine cabinets:


Calcium citrate with vitamin D
Centrum multivitamins
Flintstones vitamins (for kids)
Vitamin B complex
Vitamins, A, C, D and E


Baby aspirin (for heart care)
Glucosamine and chondroitin
Tylenol (adult & children’s)

Afrin nasal spray
Larydol homeopathic sore throat spray with echinacea
