What medicines do you truly need in your survival kit?
The answer depends a lot on your own situation.
And how do you get the supply you need of a prescription medication when you have to fight your insurance company?
Fortunately, you can get past the insurance company’s idiocy using one of these tactics:
Anyway, here’s a few medications that will do you great good in the event of an emergency:
1. Cipro (ciproflaxin) 500 – 750 mg tabs
750 is a high dosage for this antibiotic. But, it’s incredibly versatile. It treats:
If you’re planning for a longer disaster or emergency situation, it’s a must-have antibiotic.
Get the cream, rather than the ointment, because it heals faster and reduces scarring. You can also use neomycin or bacitracin zinc.
They’re all great for mild to moderate injuries, aches, and pain relief. Aspirin carries the additional bonus of being healthy for your heart.
This is your major pain relief medication. Be aware that you must be careful and wise in your use of oxycodone.
It’s a heavily restricted major narcotic (and frequently gets sold on the street). But, it’s excellent if you’re planning for intense pain relief.
5. Benadryl (diphenhydramine)
This is your go-to for minor allergic reactions. Sneezing, coughing, wheezing, hives, and skin rash all succumb to Benadryl.
The one con is the side effect: you will feel quite sleepy and tired after you take it.
Benadryl can’t handle severe allergic reactions, which require a shot.
6. Lotrisone (betamethasone/clotrimazole)
This is a prescription-strength antifungal. It protects you from athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm.
So, yes. Having those medications available will protect you from many diseases and conditions which can affect you if you have to rough it for a while.
Keep ‘em at your disposal.
