G6PD meds: What medicine specifically are you concerned about, or at least what class of medicine do you need. Rather than try to list them here, see this link for a list of g6pd meds that are low-risk: http://www.G6pd.Org/en/g6pddeficiency/safeunsafe/lowrisk.Aspx and here is a list of high-risk drugs: http://www.G6pd.Org/en/g6pddeficiency/safeunsafe/daevitare_iss-it.

Would not recommend: In trying to determine what is in "tiki-tiki", I have run across a number of g6pd forums asking a similar question and the consensus is not safe for g6pd. I do not know why you want to take tiki-tiki (or give tiki-tiki to your child), but i would say the risk/benefit ratio favors staying away from it if you have g6pd. A hemolytic crisis is not worth it. Find something else instead of tiki-tiki.

Yes: anybody with G6PD should memorize a list of substances which can cause their blood cells to burst. Like fava beans or naphthalene moth balls.
