Antibiotics – Are There any “over the counter”?

Emergency Antibiotics for when the SHTF

I am not, in any way, trained in the medical profession – you will need to do your own research for emergency medical supplies or antibiotics, based upon your doctor’s recommendations, your particular situation, the needs of your family and the conditions under which you will be forced to live. And for how long you may be required to live under those conditions.


Survival antibiotics:

In the event of social collapse or a major disaster, modern medical supply facilities may not be available and life saving prescription antibiotics will be in high demand and short in supply.

Poorly prepared people who are forced to fend for themselves, and are unaccustomed, will suffer a higher incidence of infection from injuries to their eyes and body. If these injuries are left  unattended for too long, infection will set in and can spread to the blood stream. And can lead to serious consequences.

However, the really important antibiotics are prescription only and chances are you will not be able to convince your doctor to write a prescription for you to simply stockpile these needed medical supplies.

Unless these people have a close friend in the medical profession, they will be without the medical supplies they need to survive.

Stockpiling needed prescription antibiotics is a necessity and can be obtained on various places on the internet without a prescription, legally.

There are many non-prescription antibiotics on the market these days, many can be found on Amazon.


Fish antibiotics, according to my research, are pharmacy grade antibiotics.

There is a website which has some information which is very helpful in this area.

Fish Antibiotics can be obtained on eBay as well.

Prescription Drugs

According to my research, the best possible way to stock pile your needed prescription drugs – have a good relation with your physician, let him/her know that you are a responsible person and that you know what you need and why.

Your physician may or may not help you.

Keep this in mind, prescription drugs have expiration dates, how accurate those dates are – ???? You need to do your own research and make your own decisions.

There are some good videos on You Tube, by qualified personnel, sharing their research. Evidently, gathering the information about prescription drugs is very time consuming.
