It can be hard to find the specific brands that you are used to. Russia also has a tendency to use non branded things in pure form in glass bottles. They can be equally effective!
Tylenol, Advil = Nurofen, Tzitramon
Neosporin = “zelenka,” or just regular brown iodine (“yod”) in a glass jar
Acne creams = salicylic acid 2% in a glass jar as an alcohol solution or as a cream + zinc.
Nyquil = Valerian pills or tea
Listerine = They have it now!
