We keep any meds that are used regularly on top of the fridge.

Don’t know how much you’re willing to spend, but if the ability to lock it up is important, this may be a solution. It looks like it can be put in a nightstand drawer, (by the pictures at the top of the page.)
These are a bit less expensive, and again looks like it could fit in a drawer of a bedside table

I don’t know how many meds you’re talking about here, but I keep all my vitamins organized by basically just using an old-person pill box – like this: http://www.amazon.com/EZY-Dose-Weekly-Pill-Reminder/dp/B0000537JP/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1402268775&sr=8-7&keywords=pill+box
There are lots of option, like ones with separate compartments for different times of day if that’s important. I keep a week of pills stocked in there at a time, and keep the bottles in a basket up on a living room shelf (easy access, but out of the way and out of view). And the box is small enough that I can throw it in my purse, keep it on the kitchen counter, put it in a drawer – whatever I need to do with it.

mrstattoo10816: Buy a lockbox or an organizer like this and keep it in your closet. I second using a weekly dosage container if it’s too much to get the pills out of the cabinet everyday. That you can slide into a drawer easily when company is over and not having pain pills labeled pain pills should deter adults at least from taking your meds.

mrstattoo10816: I bought a couple of plastic baskets from a discount store, and put SO’s medicines in it. We keep the medicines in the kitchen cupboard, out of sight. I also bought some baskets for the bathroom cupboard to organise the aftershaves, deodorants, perfumes etc. Go into one of the discount stores and you’ll soon be inspired!

If you are in Australia they can do Webster packs. They group your tablets in a blister pack according to what time of day you take them. Pharmacies do this for a tiny fee, it is great!

If you are a DIY person you could try something like this.
The original calls for using pill bottles to hold makeup brushes, but you could certainly leave the cap on and use the bottle as intended. It would be easy to see what pills were where, and easy to access.
If you are not a DIY person maybe something like this would work http://www.amazon.com/Cocoon-CPG10GY-Grid-It-Organizer-Gray/dp/B002T0HRVY
Either one would easily slide into a closet or drawer if it needed to be put up when company comes over.

I have this pill case: http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=492511&catid=191623 and it just lays out on the kitchen counter. I do put it in our bedroom if people are over (just on my nightstand). I have a basket in a cabinet with all of my meds, and my frequently used meds are just in a giant ziploc bag on top. We do have a lock box that we occasionally dump all of our meds into (one of my relatives is in recovery adn suggested we do this so he is not tempted). We put our meds in that, and then put them in our closet.
