Why is Your Bag So Heavy?

Any time anyone else picks up my shoulder bag/pocketbook, they inevitably ask why my bag is so heavy. I try to regularly clean out its contents to eliminate any extra weight. One item I cannot eliminate is my allergy medicine bag.  It contains two epipens, 2 different corticosteroids for my son's eczema, 2 prefilled Benadryl spoons and a tube of hydrocortisone. The asthma inhaler doesn't fit and to be honest, I don't carry it around daily since my son has mild viral-induced asthma (during colds and viruses) and I understand the epipen will do the same job should an unexpected episode occur. (God forbid.) 

I decided to weigh my allergy medicine bag--it weighs 11.5 ounces, about three-quarters of a pound! How much does your filled allergy medicine bag weigh?
