My father-in-law is a doctor. He recently wrote me prescriptions for:

Amoxicillin (30-500mg)
Erythromycin EC (28-350mg)
Septra (SMZ-TMP DS) (20-800mg)
Keflex (cephalexin) (28-250mg)
Tetracycline (60-500mg)
Gentamicin (5ml)

I am able to buy these at Walmart for $4 each, no insurance required. I do want to replace them every couple of years, but these antibiotics will fix just about everything.
Wow! You must be really sick for all of that

I think you were just jibbing me a bit, but let me explain, for the purposes of the audience. If ever society were to collapse locally, regionally, or...I don't want to think about it too much...access to medical care would be limited or non-existent. We must be capable of self-care. My first aid kits are stout and quite complete. I'd have a hard time with internal injuries or compound fractures, but anything surface I am ready for. Infections are a little different. What about pink-eye? A staph infection from a scratch? A kidney infection? A Gi-tract infection? This list of meds would deal with each of those issues. I'd only have one course of each, so it is just like my supply of first-aid stuff: limited, but effective.

Water, food, firearms, meds, fuel. All very important.

I did get Keflex for my wound, I figure I'll save what I don't use. I looked at that Quikclot & it's awesome! It's not that expensive either.

Looks like good stuff & shouldn't take up a lot of room.

To me, a very important issue is the bag. One must find a good bag that can be carried, then fill it up, then don't use it! That sounds funny, but buy enough supplies so that you have the complete first-aid/medical kit AND some extras for a drawer in your house somewhere. When you have problems at your house, go to the drawer and leave the kit intact. Then, if ever you have to bug out, you for sure that your kit is complete.

If years go by, it is good to check expiration dates, though. This is my choice of pack:

Blackhawk EMS Medical Roll

I keep mine in my BOB but I do take it everywhere as I ride a cruiser & work security.

I have 2 levels of first-aid kit. I have 4 smaller first-aid kits I created for smaller issues, one in each car and one in my range bag. Then the med-roll kit is more complete with surgical tools, medications, and more intense medical gear. This I just keep at home for real emergencies. But then I'm just a grade school teacher. Owies don't usually require sutures and benzoin tincture.
