Quote from: Raptor on July 14, 2021, 01:12:02 PMOne of the issues and why I stopped stocking these is that their effectiveness seems to wane faster due to adaptation of "bugs" than their shelf life.That said I do stock: zeniquin but mainly for animal care. It seems to be the go to drug for animal skin abscesses like cat bites etc. My DVM has no problem providing it lawfully to me so that is a consideration.Ciprofloxacin for use in humans mainly due to the fact it seems to be rx of choice prescribed by my MD and thus easy to obtain.
Quote from: RoneKiln on July 15, 2021, 01:33:02 AMMost of my life I've been prone to sinus infections during allergy season, and these easily evolve into lung infections for me. I have always, my entire life, responded very well to simple penicillin based drugs. When Covid looked like it might reach the US on a large scale, and I realized how much of our pharmaceuticals came from a country already in lockdown from Covid, I ordered vet grade penicillin and a common non penicillin antibiotic. I'm confident in penicillin, but I wanted an option for fighting anything resilient to penicillin or for someone that might be allergic to penicillin.Since ordering them I have discovered I no longer struggle with seasonal allergies. So sinus and lung infections don't appear to be the same risk for me they used to be.
Quote from: TACAIR on July 23, 2021, 09:56:49 AMI would very strongly suggest that if you decide to stock what would normally be a prescription drug (of any kind) that you purchase a paper copy of the Physician's Desk Reference Guide . Used volumes can be had in fine condition for under $50. Check on line, buy from reputable sellers.These have dose guidelines and lists of possible side effects. the life you save may be your own - prescription drugs are controlled for a reason.

I've heard good things about getting one of these kits just to have some decent antibiotics around. Jase Emergency Antibiotic Kit

I am real tempted to try them out and would also like to hear if anyone else has used them. All the reviews I found online for them were in return for free product, and could only review the ease of delivery and how nice the case and book are. I didn't see any reviews from anyone actually using the medications.
Quote from: majorhavoc on September 14, 2022, 10:43:35 AMI just had my second knee replacement surgery yesterday. The first one was done in May and in between I had a couple of complications. The first seemed minor (a loose dental crown) that turned out to be serious (the tooth was fractured below the gum line and infected, requiring emergency extraction - hello gap-toothed smile). The other started out serious (apparent bacterial infection of the artificial knee) that turned to be pretty minor (skin infection at the incision site). I ended up getting multiple scripts for antibiotics, with refills as needed. Both issues were resolved but every time my pharmacy calls asking if I need a refill I say, Yes please, [*cough, cough*), for gods sake, yes!I now have one spare 10 day course of Cephalexin (apparently all I'm going to get) and four courses (and counting) of amoxicillin. I know all this sounds sort of like a gloat but multiple joint replacements are no picnic, those complications were sucky and especially the suspected joint infection was pretty scary.So scoring a modest supply of post-apocalyptic antibiotics seems like a small reward for enduring all that.
QuoteDrug products belonging to the group without any failure in the stability screening of more than ten lots were, among others, amoxicillin sodium tablets, ciprofloxacin tablets, doxycycline capsules, naloxone HCl injection solutions, halothane liquids, diphenhydramine syringe-needles, morphine syringe-needles, and various saline injection solutions.
QuoteDoxycycline tablets and capsules are compendial drug products that are manufactured to meet the recommended tests and criteria of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP)/National Formulary (NF) monographs and FDA-approved specifications. Specification attributes include assay, dissolution, and degradant limits, which may be stability-indicating and relevant for stability studies. Stability studies reviewed by FDA over many years have confirmed that none of the components of approved doxycycline tablets and capsules, including the active ingredient, has significant potential for chemical degradation or interaction with other components in the formulation or with components of the container closure system when stored according to labeled directions.
