What do you use if you can't use childproof drug bottles?

I have a lot of medicine, some of which could be dangerous to children.  I babysit my 2yr old nephew daily, he is a VERY active boy who loves to climb, kitchen counters included.

I keep my medicine in the kitchen so I don't forget to take it (it's all taken with meals)

I have medicine for arthritis and edema.  I cannot open the pills until I have a pill.  I got the pop-top bottles this time because it really is painful trying to open the push and turn childproof lids.

I'm thinking of getting a little lockbox with a combo lock.  Anyone else have to do this? What do you use?

I cant open bottles. My pills are all separated by daily doses in snack sized plastic baggies which are stored in a small plastic container with a lid on top of my fridge.

I take a medication that thins the blood, therefore can be very dangerous to a child.  We keep our meds in the cabinet over the stove, but when we discovered my son could open the childproof bottles, put all of our meds into a large tool box with a combo lock.  Better safe than sorry.

Put them in a box that's locked with a key.

Lock box. It's what my clients do and it works well.

Yea, I've seen my nephew climb bookshelves to get a lolipop, just used the shelves like they were steps.  He's 2 and can scale the slanted rock climbng wall at the park.  His nickname is monkey lol
