I am an avid reader of the end of the world type books.  EMP, Economic collapse, etc.  So I am always working on ways to prepare for disasters either short term or long term. 

Been looking into antibiotics as something as simple as a tooth infection could kill you.  I have found that you can buy Fin Mox with is 100% amoxicillin and or Fish Flex which is cephalexin in case you have a allergy to penicillin.

Shelf life it said to be several years before they start to really loose potency.  I think I will buy a bottle of each every year and get a nice supply built up.

I use those fish antibiotics for dogs. They're not as strong as the stuff we get from the doctor. I base this on a direct comparison of leftover people stuff versus fish stuff on the dogs. The fish stuff does work, though. Different ones have different best applications. It would pay to read up.

Another precaution I take when going to the hunt camp (min 4hrs to get out to medical help) is to take some very strong pain killers.  I have a long established relationship with my doctor and he has prescribed percocet for me knowing they won't be abused.  A few years ago one of our older members slipped on an icy log and suffered a badly broken arm.  It would have been sheer agony for him coming out on a rough 4 wheeler trail without the pills to take the edge off.  They could make the difference in a survival situation on being able to stay focused.

There is a pain killer that for some retarded reason FDA no longer allows here, but I can still pick it up elsewhere when I travel: Optalgin. Side effects are comparatively minor and it is far more effective than anything over the counter in the US.

Craig it sounds like you have quite a jaunt into camp. I thought where I formerly hunted in the Adirondacks that 12 miles back in on rough dirt roads was a trip.

I was at the Doc this morning because I have an infected ingrown toenail.  He prescribed me cephalexin which is one of the antibiotics I listed above. 

So I asked him if the fish versions of these were the same thing.  First he gave me a big smile.  Then he said well I cannot advise you to take those, but as far as I know they are the same. 

Interesting indeed

I got a cousin that is a pharmacist.  I am going to visit with him about this too.

Here are some different ones I have found that would be worth consideration to be put in emergency storage. 

Fin Flox Forte. 
Ciprofloxacin, or Cipro Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic in a group of drugs called fluoroquinolon​es. It is used as a potent, broad-spectrum antibiotic to fight bacteria in the body. It may also be used to prevent or slow anthrax after exposure.

Fish Flucon, 
fluconazole treat yeast infections vaginal candidiasis, (thrush, oral thrush), esophageal candidiasis (candida esophagitis), other candida infections (including urinary tract infections, peritonitis [inflammation of the lining of abdomen or stomach]. 

Fish Aid. 
Bactrim. 
This medication is a combination of two antibiotics: sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. It is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections (such as middle ear, urine, respiratory, and intestinal infections). It is also used to prevent and treat a certain type of pneumonia (pneumocystis-type).

Make sure you verify for drug interactions against the conventional names if you're going to get the veterinary drugs.

Example, Fin Flox Forte - Ciprofloaxin - I can't take this drug because it is an antagonist to Warfarin (coumadin) that I take daily.  Your cousin would be a good resource for this.

Excellent point. Thank you.

I don't personally ever plan on taking these unless its an emergency situation where doctors and or hospitals are not operating. So for me these would be for real disasters.

I still plan on getting antibiotics from the dr in normal circustances.

I live in a small town of about 1100 people. We have three dr's in my town. One if them lives a block and a half away and we are good friends. So hopefully if its ever bad enough we need to use them he could be of assistance to us.
