Best Drugs to Stock in a Prepper Home Pharmacy



A well-stocked prepper home pharmacy ensures that you will not need to run out to the store to purchase a medication when you are feeling under the weather or when it may not be safe to venture out.

Consult your medical provider to determine exactly what medications you should keep in your prepper medicine cabinet.

What are the best medications to include in a well-stocked prepper home pharmacy? The best drugs to stock in your prepper medicine cabinet include a combination of over-the-counter and prescription meds.

Here is the FDA announcement

Risk is probably very low but medical providers are using Pepcid (famotidine) in place of the Zantac (ranitidine).
