You don't need ID to buy Tylenol or Aspirin products.

Teachers at my school had X-acto cutters on hand all the time. You, again, can't really buy this stuff at a physical store without proper identification because it's a really sharp tool. It's useful for projects, but if you really needed one, asking a teacher to buy one for use for the whole class is a better solution.
You don't need an ID for these type of products as well. You can easily go into Office Max or Staples and buy one. They don't ask for ID. Now they might in your neck of woods but not here. :/

I was in a Catholic boarding high school in the early 90's, we weren't even allowed to have candy/snacks in our rooms. I remember the penguins losing their minds when one of the girls came to school with birth control pills in her things (she was prescribed them for a medical condition), she was nearly expelled for it.

A school system more strict then Madrasa.

Honestly, I see signs of fanaticism in USA in certain categories equivalent to the Middle East.

If you have a headache or are experiencing pain, you ask your teacher for permission to go to the nurse, or you go between classes. A student shouldn't be administering themselves medication, nor should they be giving their friends some either. In the case of my friend, if someone would have offered her some Tylenol, she would have probably ended up in the emergency room. It is something schools doesn't want to have to deal with.

Teachers at my school had X-acto cutters on hand all the time. You, again, can't really buy this stuff at a physical store without proper identification because it's a really sharp tool. It's useful for projects, but if you really needed one, asking a teacher to buy one for use for the whole class is a better solution.

As for off campus lunch... There were specific days when this was allowed. I used to know people that used to run off to the bookstore during that time though. Can you imagine what would have happened if a parent showed up looking for them because they had an emergency and needed to have them home? Can you imagine if they got into a car accident?

When I was in middle school, I used to stay in the after school program in the computer lab. And one time some lady decided to take a bunch of her kid's friends to Starbucks, maybe about five. One of their parents showed up ten minutes later to take them home, and the teacher had no idea where they were. They all showed up like 30 minutes later, and that teacher freaked out and told them that it wasn't going to happen anymore. The parent wasn't too fussed about it, but that lady really shouldn't have done that.

Most of this kind of stuff is in the handbooks though, they can't just let stuff slip because of good students, they have to play by the rules.
Where are you shopping at? None of those things require ID, even at Wal-mart, the king of IDing for stuff no one else does. I suspect you're the type that gets a little frightened by your own shadow. And the thought that a high school student is incapable of properly self-medicating with Advil is absolutely ridiculous.
