AMA adopts new public health policies at Annual Meeting
June 17, 2008

CHICAGO — The American Medical Association (AMA), the nation's largest physician organization, voted today at its Annual Meeting to adopt the following new public health policies.

[snip]

Personal medication supply in times of disaster: Earthquakes, hurricanes and floods have headlined recent news reports. This new policy supports allowing all patients with chronic medical conditions to maintain an emergency reserve of prescription medications. It also encourages patients to carry a list of current medications and the prescribing physician's contact information with them to ensure continuity of care in the event of a disaster or other emergency.

"There are more than 125 million Americans living with chronic illnesses who rely on medication," said AMA Board Member Steven Stack, MD. "Disasters can happen at any time, and ensuring that patients with chronic conditions have access to needed medications may help minimize the uncertainty, confusion and health risks following a disaster."

Ten Essential OTC Medications to Stockpile by Cynthia J. Koelker, MD
http://www.survivalblog.com/2010/12/ten ... tions.html

By James Wesley, Rawles on December 13, 2010 12:12 AM

Are over-the-counter (OTC) drugs really worth stockpiling? As a family physician my answer is a resounding yes. Most of the following were actually prescription medications when first released. (In higher dosages, several still are.) Although other OTC drugs are worth considering, these ten have been selected due to their ready availability, affordability, safety in both adults and children, and multi-use potential. Used alone or in combination, they can effectively treat dozens of conditions including: headache, fever, sore throats, ear ache, menstrual cramps, heartburn, arthritis, ulcers, diarrhea, allergies, hives, congestion, dizziness, mild anxiety, nausea, vomiting, poison ivy, athlete's foot, ringworm, eczema, insomnia, backache, gout, diaper rash, yeast infections, and many more common illnesses. ---- Continued at link, above ---

Includes:
    1. Ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) - Among the OTC anti-inflammatory medications, ibuprofen is probably the most . . . .

    2. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) - Acetaminophen is the only OTC pain-reliever that is not . . . .

    4. Loperamide (Imodium) - The most effective OTC medication for . . . .

    5. Pseudoephedrine (Sudafed) - Pseudoephedrine is effective at relieving . . . .

    6. Meclizine (Bonine, Dramamine) - This antiemetic drug is available both over the counter and by prescription. It relieves . . . .

    7. Ranitidine (Zantac) - Although several medications are available OTC for the treatment of . . . .

    8. Hydrocortisone cream - The 1% version of hydrocortisone is the strongest . . . .

    10. Clotrimazole (Gyne-Lotrimin) The same antifungal medication, clotrimazole, is contained in both Lotrimin and Gyne-Lotrimin. Gyne-Lotrimin may be used to treat both . . . .

Conclusion
For under $50 total a good supply of all of the above can be purchased. Several of these medications are also available at . . . .

Over The Counter Meds to Stockpile

Over The Counter Meds For Survival
http://modernsurvivalblog.com/health/over-the-counter-meds-for-survival/

Once you get beyond the basics of survival, it helps to think of actually being able to tolerate a disaster. The over the counter medication recommendations are pretty self-explanatory, as most people can read directions and also have some knowledge of these meds already in their occasional use during their everyday lives.

The following medications should be stored separately from your regular stock. Meaning… you should buy extra specifically for storage, as you do for your long term food storage. Medications, like food, need to be stored in a cool, dry, and preferably dark environment to maximize shelf life.

Note: Regarding the use of any of the following medications, consult with your doctor. --- CONTINUED at LINK, above ---

Our easy access to so many different medicines over the counter (OTC) is something that will be sorely missed should the S ever hit the fan.

Here are 10 OTC medicines that everyone should have in their emergency supplies, everyday carry and bug out bags.

18 OTC Meds for Survival Kit
http://survivallife.com/2015/07/17/18-otc-meds-for-your-kit/

Image --- (Snip) --- Most likely there isn’t a person reading this that doesn’t have a bottle of aspirin or acetaminophen, most commonly known as Tylenol, in the house. Chances are you even have some ibuprofen which sells under the name of Advil or Motrin. We have this because from time to time we have all suffered some sort of ache and pain.

Do you have something in the house to handle an allergic reaction? What about something to handle a sudden bout of diarrhea?

It is very important to insure you have a good stock of the following OTC or over the counter, medications or treatments in the house, in your bug out bag, your get home bag. Many of these items should also be carried as part of your EDC (everyday carry).

Always be prepared with: ... CONTINUED at LINK, above ...
