Gordon needs to be careful how he packs his medicines for travel, as some can deteriorate if they are stored incorrectly.
Well, if I'm travelling … if I'm going to visit interstate or anything like that, or even just for a weekend away, I use one of those seven-day containers [dosette box]. But some of them … for instance, you can't put that one in with them because it sweats and then you end up with a slurry in the bottom of the thing. So you've got to keep that one separate. But all the others leave them in the al-foil, cut the strips off and … so usually, if I'm going away for a weekend or something like that, I'll take seven days' supply with me. Day and night … they've got a day and night. I find that quite easy to look after. Just press out the day you're starting, that's all.
