Best Over the Counter Medications

by Elyse Hoffman

Beneshop has a lot of over-the-counter medications for you to choose from. Luckily we have compiled a list of our favorites to have on hand. Make sure you are stocked up with these FSA and HSA eligible items!

Blistex Medicated Lip Balm (FSA/HSA Eligible)

This has to be the best chapstick on the market. Blistex seals in moisture to prevent dryness and soothes irritated lips. It glides on comfortably and easily to help provide complete coverage. Also, it provides SPF 15 sun protection!

Review:“After buying literally every chapstick on earth, including expensive ones, I decided to give this classic a try. I forgot how amazing it is! I only have to apply once, it feels great(tingly in a good way), soothes lips, and has a slightly mint-y smell(no flavor, which I like). And the best part is it doesnt make my lips worse after it wears off, leaving me in an endless cycle of application! I dont know why I forgot how great this product is, once I started using it I remembered how much I used it as a kid. I am so pleased to finally have a chap stick that works for me!” -Amazon Customer

If you have ever gotten heartburn you know it is no joke. This new formula of Zantac 360 acid reducer provides relief that targets heartburn at its source. If you take one tablet it can improve and prevent heartburn quickly. 

Review: “A new formula is being used in this original strength Zantac 360 over-the-counter heartburn medicine. The active ingredient is 10mg famotidine which is the active ingredient used in Pepcid which is another indigestion/heartburn medication I’ve used in the past without any issues. The tablets are tiny so they are no problem to swallow. Dosage to relieve heartburn is 1 tablet with a glass of water.” – Amazon Customer

Bioallers Animal Hair & Dander Allergy Treatment (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Another great combination package with both day and night medications. Sudafed PE does a great job of relieving sinus pressure and congestion. The nighttime tablets also relieve sneezing, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, and itchy throat or nose. Beat cold season with this amazing duo. 

Review: “Great to have daytime AND nighttime meditation in one box. I don’t get sick that often so there’s no need for large bottles of meds that will expire before I use even half of them up. This is the perfect combo and number of meds to have on hand. They are effective. Probably a good idea for travel, too. So glad Sudafed came up with this idea. Smart buy! – Amazon Customer
