I realized that I haven’t posted about over the counter medicine, or prescription medicine for your in-house pharmacy SHTF list. That all changes today. Because that just-so happens to be what I will be doing today.
If you haven’t come up with a subject that you would like to know about, or see a post about, please let me know. I am pretty good at coming up with content, but sometimes, guys, it is kinda tough. That is probably the largest contributor to the few days that I just don’t want to post. So, help me out and give me some great topics that I haven’t covered that YOU want to see.
This is just a list of over the counter medicines to consider that I stole from a doctor’s list. It is good to have a list of medicines to consider in a TEOTWAKI, or during a global pandemic. Really, it is actually just nice to have what you need when you need it on hand.
I am hesitant to take even Tylenol because most medicines are tested for immediate effects on people, but it isn’t feasible for 20 years of study to be done on a medicine prior to production. I don’t trust most medications, so I limit my consumption of them. However, I will still take something if I need it bad enough.
So I don’t get sued!: I AM NOT A DOCTOR. I tell you guys all the time that I am NOT an expert. My blog is all over the place with survival, and no one can know everything there is to know. If I find something interesting, like today, that I want to share with you, it is up to you to consult your doctor or pharmacist so they can tell you that you are an idiot for wanting to take 3 bottles of Tylenol at one time. You are responsible for your own health, so you should get the opinion of those schooled in these meds, and then make your own informed decision.
This being said, all of these medications are over-the-counter (OTC) which means that you need no prescription to get them. I know this is a heavy western-medicine post, so hopefully I can do an alternative medicine or herbal medicine post soon.

Since pretty much all human antibiotics are by prescription but Fish Antibiotics are the same antibiotic as the general antibiotics for people by prescription. Use caution.
I am not telling you to get all of these medications. But, if there is one that you see on the list that you use, I would have a good 90 day supply of them stored up.
Medicines are great for more urgent, corrective care. Do we take this medicine, just to take it, or for preventative care? Absolutely not. But when diarrhea kills, it would be nice to keep it under control.
