Survival MedicationA Guide to Storing Prepper Antibiotics

Unfortunately, illnesses don’t care about disasters.  They’ll keep coming at you regardless of whether or not you’re in an emergency situation.  Few people take into consideration that when disasters hit, there won’t be access to the same level of medical care or prescriptions.

You’ll want to start now and learn how to store antibiotics for your future. There are a handful of antibiotics you want to make sure you have in a good supply.  These 7 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 struggle with recurring illness – especially if you have a compromised immune system – you may be able to talk to your doctor about ordering a few months’ worth of antibiotics from your mail order pharmacy.

You want to store as much of these as you can for upcoming disasters.  However, what happens if you can’t get all of the medication you need lined up?  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 humans. 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.

Never toss out antibiotics just because the date on them is past the ‘use by’ date.  This date doesn’t mean that if it’s past that time, that suddenly the medication is no longer effective.

All manufacturers are required by law to put 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.

What most preppers do is to store their antibiotics 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.

Admin’s  Note:    Please be advised:

The link below will ask to add the “item” or “package” to your Amazon Shopping Cart.
This DOES NOT!!! – Obligate you to pay for or order any items at all.
This is Amazon’s way of “KEEPING TRACK” of the stuff you look at. You can adjust the items in your cart or delete them all – “ALWAYS YOUR CHOICE!”  – So – When you click on the link and see:

“Add to Shopping Cart”
Please confirm that you want to add the item(s) listed below to your cart. ” You can click “Continue” and all of the item/items will appear below for you to view and research – it is here you can delete any or all of the items or come back later to keep looking.

This is like putting items in your “buggy” at the grocery store.
You DO NOT have to BUY ANYTHING at all until you “CHECK OUT”
Amazon does not explain this real well – so – WE DID!

The thought of a world without pharmacies and supermarkets is scary. I have stocked up on a lot of emergency and common sense medications like antibiotics and painkillers as well as things like my diabetes medication and my dad’s asthma inhalers. The easiest route to do so is by ordering from online pharmacies based in India. Some of the more reliable are: PharmacyRXOne, 4RX, JCM Pharmacy, and V Medical. Most deliver to the US by regular mail and it is delivered as USPS mail. US customs turns a blind eye as long as you are keeping the orders smallish…. as in under 400-500 pills per package. Whatever happens, whether it is a financial system meltdown, solar flare, EMP, or even run of the mill natural disaster, I am completely stocked to deal with it.
