In this post we will discuss how to get and store antibiotics without a prescription, and how to do it legally. Illnesses don’t care about SHTF. They’ll keep charging right at you whether or not you’re in an emergency situation.
Not many people realize that when disasters strike, they won’t have access to the same level of medical care or prescriptions.
You need to start now and learn how to get and store antibiotics for an emergency. There are are several antibiotics you want to make sure you have in your bug out bag, or emergency kit.
The most important antibiotics are: sulfamethoxazole (400mg), amoxicillin (both the 250 as well as the 500 mg), metronidazole (250 mg), ciprofloxacin (store these in both the 250 and the 500 mg), ampicillin (again, both the 250 and the 500 mg), cephalexin (250 and 500 mg) and doxycycline in 100 mg.
If you are dealing with a recurring illness – especially if you have a compromised immune system – you may might be able to talk to your doctor about ordering a few months’ worth of antibiotics from your mail order pharmacy.
You’ll want to get and store antibiotics in as big as quantities as possible for looming disasters. So…what do you do if you can’t get all of the medication you desire?
You can do what some other preppers are doing and buy the equivalent of human antibiotics right off the shelf in your local veterinarian’s office and you don’t need a prescription to get this medication.
There are some medications that are prescribed to animals that are the same ones that are given to people. Amoxicillin can be found under the name fish-mox forte. The bottle evenly clearly labels itself as amoxicillin. Doxycycline can be found as bird biotic.
Don’t throw out antibiotics just because the date on them has expired. This date doesn’t mean that if it’s after that time, that all of a sudden the medication is no longer good.
All manufacturers are required by law to place a date on the medication. Most medications can last a couple of years past that use by date. But in order for them to be viable, you have to store them properly.
When it comes to keeping antibiotics, heat can render an antibiotic useless. So you don’t want to store them in heat or anywhere that moisture can be an issue.
So that means you don’t want to store your antibiotics in your bug out bag if your bug out bag isn’t kept in a cool place.
The best way to store antibiotics is in the freezer. You want to seal them up first with a vacuum seal. The lower temperatures keeps the medicine from breaking down the way they would if stored at room temperature or warmer.
Storing antibiotics is something every prepper need to get started on right away. Don’t get caught short!
