Medical supply list

NOTE: I AM NOT A DOCTOR AND THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE, THIS IS FOR INFORMATIONAL AND EDUCATION USE ONLY. PLEASE KNOW ALL ALERGIES AND SENSITIVITIES TO ANY AND ALL MEDICATIONS BEFORE USING

A good many of these medications can be got with a prescription from your local MD, Canadian pharmacies, and yes Amazon

Medication classes to stock

  • Pain medication
  • Fever reduction
  • Anti Diarrheal
  • Allergy
  • Asthma
  • Nausea
  • Antibiotics

Pain medication classes, NSAID aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen and acetaminophen

and narcotics, Morphine, Fentanyl Percocett Lortab oxy and hydrocodone

The NSAIDS are the easy ones,

My kit includes 400 tabs of each of the NSAIDS That is put away and not daily use

  • NSAIDS
  • Ibuprofin 2x 300 count SAMS club bottles
  • acetaminophen 2x 300 count SAMS club bottles
  • Naproxin 1x 400 count SAMS club bottles
  • Aspirin 2x 500 count 325 SAMS club bottles
  • Aspirin 1x 730 count 81mg SAMS club bottles

Fever reducing. These are a direct copy of the NSAIDS list

Narcotics. This class of drug is a prescription only. And current laws prohibit the possession with out a valid prescription and it has to be in someones name on the premises. Also the FDA and other agencies are really cracking down on prescription drug abuse and OD’s

That being said and I have a doctor that trusts me not to be selling them and or abusing them:

  • Lortab. Hydrocodone Acetaminophen 5mg/325mg 120 tabs (1 tab 4 times a day for 30 days)These will be augmented with NSAIDS NOT ACETAMINOPHEN. Lortabs contain it and you can overdose a patient and damage the liver. Also there are herbal pain medications that can augment either of these drugs
  • Oxy or Hyrdo codone. 120 5mg tabs

Again re read the warning on narcotics. They are VERY BAD NEWS if you posses them and do not have a prescription.

Anti Diarrheal/Upset stomach

  • loperamide hydrochloride/Imodium Kirkland Amazon.com 1200 caplet pack x1of a large long term group
  • Peptol Bismol Sams club, 2x 2 bottle package
  • Alka Seltzer Sams club 116 ct package x2

    I’m an RN, and this is a great list, at least as far as the traditional medications. I can’t speak to anything herbal because they don’t teach it in nursing school unfortunately. Great job. I just wanted to point out that prescriptions for narcotics if they say prn (as needed) are typically only valid for 30 days to 90 days, depending on what state you live in. That doesn’t mean the drug’s effectiveness expires, that’s just how long you’re legally allowed to be using it. This comes as a nasty surprise for people who’ve smashed their thumb, took a couple pain pills, and got randomly drugv tested after the prn status had legally expired. Just keep that in mind!
