News article said Publix grocery chain will give away free the 7 most common prescribed antibiotics [w/ a script of course].

They are:

"The prescription antibiotics available under the program are amoxicillin, cephalexin, penicillin VK, erythromycin, ampicillin, sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim, and ciprofoxacin."

[I was surprised amoxicillin wasn't included]

The indentification of the most prescribed antibiotics is good intelligence because most all of them are available for treating animals from Lambriar vet supply with no script. This has been referenced here in the past.

This is likely useful info for prepping for a SHTF event.

Looks like they included the amoxy.

What is the reason they are filling these scripts free? Get folks in the door?

You're right, I guess I'm tired and it's late.

Anyone know the shelf life of typical antibiotics? Or which antibiotic would treat which ailment? Seems like a great addition to your preps.

There are online stores, as well as local farm stores, that sell antibiotics for animals that may well also be suitable for humans. From what I've read, I wouldn't be surprised if that's true. Anyone can buy the animal stuff without a prescription. The hard part is knowing what to use, when to use it, and in what dosages, because if you screw up you can do more harm than good.

Most bottles that we get in have a 1-5 year exp. date. Most are ok to use after the exp date ( we toss them out) but they do lose their strenght over time.

It looks to me as though Lambriar requires a prescription.

Big deal. These things are very inexpensive.

It's just a ploy to get people in the door.

Most people don't take antibiotics that much, so it's not going to save you more than a few bucks.

Probably an attempt to counter the Walmart $4 prescription program:

And this week's special, a 5lb bag of sugar is just one cent.

ETA

Marketing.

And FWIW, those arent the most "popular" antibiotics, just the cheapest, most common generic antibiotics.

That's the primary point, these antibiotics are among the ones you want for the most common issues.

What's so hard to understand about that?
