I would not want to work in a pharmacy. No doubt they will be the first stores looted. The FDA needs to make some changes in allowing people to stock up!acidlittle said:it is very scary, that if SHTF occurred these people, sadly, would suffer and ultimately perish.
I'm lucky to not need any kind of meds, but can you imagine how much those would be worth in that situation??? People would be dying and willing to give up everything to get them. It'd be horrible.
Thanks, good links to think about.I know that a lot of people with diabetes fear when STHF more so than most since some diabetics rely heavily on man made medication. I don't have too much experience with diabetes myself but are there any plants you can plant around your property that can be harvested in the event of you lacking medication? I came across a few plants that can grow locally that apparently can be helpful in a lot of different ways. Over the centuries we have become increasing dependent on synthetic medication but we learned of these from natural products, I'm looking into herbal remedies and natural medications just in case I ever need them.

Plants As Means Of Blood Sugar Control
Like I said, I don't have much experience with diabetes so forgive me if I'm incorrect but if these articles help any then I'll be happy. I believe the second article in particular states that consuming the one plant every day lowered the dosage needed by half.
Hm. I imagine you'd have to do a lot of research into the particular medicine you were using, making sure it's safe for human consumption, is expected to have the same effect on humans as animals... and of course adjusting the dosage for you rather than your cat (or your horse!) without possibly hurting yourself would be very important to get right. But, that's still a really promising idea. I imagine it would be much easier to get prescriptions for animals?It used to be common knowledge to use pet medications, such as the antibiotics etc... in emergencies. With a little bit of sleuthing most (not diabetic) prescriptions medications can be found, with a pet equivalent... I read a great book with lots of suggestions on which meds where the same as human ones.....
Hmmm... ok, I can't find the title.. I will add a post when I find it.
