OTC Medicine Refill Kit?

Went thru my ready backpack and found ALL meds out of date. I guess not so ready eh?
So I found some OTC (over the counter) medicine refill kits on egay and elsewhere on the web, ones that have the meds in individual dose foil pack like for travel and camping which is what I want. I dont need a complete med kit, just the OTC meds that go in it. Feeling a sense of urgency about it I popped for three refill kits off egay just to get something going ASAP, kinda feel dumb for letting it lapse so bad.
The refill kits I ordered are 121 pieces from a 100% positive feedback seller claiming the latest exp dates. Decent basic med refill kits looks like. We will see but what I want to know is if there are pro-level military or expedition quality OTC medicine refill kits out there? I did find adventure medical and bmg global supply but am not convinced they are any better than egay vendors. Has anyone done this before and have a recommendation? I do not want to have to piece together a kit one item at a time.
If I can find deluxe pro level refill I'll swap out the egay kits I have on order and put them in the vehicles to update the kits there.

Just search for "otc med refills" in ebay and it will come up.

Spent time today on the hunt for and found some serious expeditionary supply but the meds required prescription in those kits.

Meds in solid form(capsules and tablets) do not ‘expire’ at their ‘best buy’ date. That is only a date that the manufacturer guarantees 100% potency. FDA studies have shown that for most meds, they retain 90% potency after 10 years if kept in dry, dark and cool conditions. This does not apply to creams, ointments or solutions, which have an active solvent that may cause deterioration over time.
