This is an empty bottle of Bufferin which holds 36 analgesic tablets. Bufferin’s combination of aspirin and antacid is intended to help reduce heartburn and upset stomach that standard aspirin may cause. This Bufferin bottle was produced a few years before child-resistant lid were required by law and as a result, this bottle has a plastic pop lid which could be popped off by pushing up on the thumb tab.
This Bufferin bottle was discovered inside a cardboard Bufferin product box designed to hold 60 analgesic tablets. To view the Bufferin Box please click the link below.
