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

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---

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---

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

--- (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---

As far as the OTC listed in the previous posts, I got them all and a few extras. Can never have enough.

The OTC's that are not pill form, I keep track of the expiration dates and replace them on a yearly basis, but I don't throw them away, I keep for on extra year.

Top 30 Over-the-Counter Meds to Stockpile
http://www.askaprepper.com/counter-medications-stockpile/

In an extreme and long-term survival situation, many items we take for granted today will be highly prized. If you made a list of items that most survivalists and preppers try to stockpile, near the top would be ammo, food and life-critical prescription drugs. Slightly lower on the list, but no less in demand, are over-the-counter medications. ---CONTINUED---
