I played Borderlands 1, but it's been a long time. I've searched through the menus, and I can't see how I use any of the red health items. I know I must have some, because when I approach new ones they say "Full". Help?

The health items are instantly applied in Borderlands 2 (unlike Borderlands 1, where there were some medkits that had to be applied from the inventory). They're useless if you're already at full health.

But remember where you see them, because you may need to find them in a hurry in a minute. :) – Allen Gould Jul 24 '13 at 17:24
