      Only meds that you can deduct for income tax purposes is prescription drugs. You can not deduct over the counter purchases even if your doctor tells you to take them. Example, your doctor tells you to take two aspirin a day and take vitamin E to help thin your blood due to heart problems. Both are non-deductible since they do not require a prescription to buy.

      I just bought some OTC cold medicines and the receipt from the store
      says “Flex Spending Acct Eligible”. I am wondering if this means
      these items can be deducted as a health expense from my 2008 taxes.
      Anyone know if this is the case, or should I just toss the receipt (we
      don’t have any FSAs)?
      Thanks,
      Stephanie
