You haven’t saved money, side effects or embarrassment by waiting to take the meds. You’ve just made things worse.
Anyway I always carry meds with me, an assortment of them, and they always lived in this:
Prior to stumbling onto my magic concoction, this “roar case” was stuffed to the brim with various sheets or cuts of medication that may or may not have worked. Once I got my concoction together it got a little neater, but I then experienced having to painfully instruct my boyfriend through which three medications to find, pop and hand to me. So to help him, and myself, I decided to make “migraine packs”. Like so:

This is the packaging if anyone is interested in hunting them down:
