As a prepper, certainly you've heard of fish antibiotics for humans? Should
you stock fish antibiotics in your prepper's medicine cabinet? Is it safe?

How to Get Antibiotics for Prepping
Are fish antibiotics safe for humans? Antibiotics available for fish, which are
popular with preppers include Fish Flex (Cephalexin), FishMox Fort
(Amoxicillin), and Fish Pen (Penicillin), but are they safe?

The decision is certainly a personal one, but Gerard S. Doyle, M.D. , in his
book "When There Is No Doctor," pictured lower right, surprisingly does not
recommend it. He does, however, suggest having a "survival formulary" and
be willing to invest time to be able to use them safely. You see, dosing
differs drastically from fish to human, and he warns human use of veterinary
medicines is illegal! He'd lose his license if he advised taking them. You may
wonder what other medical professionals think...

Are fish antibiotics safe for humans?
Here's what Patriot Nurse has to say:

Please watch the video above from Patriot Nurse about fish antibiotics, like
FishMox, which is well worth considering. Pay heed to the caveats and
cautions, because when it comes to antibiotics for humans, there is much to
consider. There are many kinds of antibiotics, and you may be able to get a
prescription from your physician.

    The top five antibiotics recommended by Patriot Nurse include:
  1. Zithromax
  2. Ampicillin*
  3. Cipro
  4. Amoxicillin*
  5. Doxycycline

    (Additionally she recommends clindamycin, Flagyl and Bactrim).

* Notably missing from the Patriot Nurse list is Penicillin, which was the first
natural oral antibiotic discovered for medicinal purposes in the 1950s;
however, Ampicillin and Amoxicillin are in the Penicillin family, so if you are
allergic to those medicines, you are allergic to Penicillin.

Since its introduction, bacteria has become resistant and
penicillin is
becoming obsolete.

Perhaps it's time to ask your doctor for an antibiotics prescription.
According to Joseph Alton (a.k.a. Dr. Bones) and Nurse Amy ( A.R.N.P. Amy
Alton) in their book, pictured left, "Small amounts of medications can be
obtained by anyone willing to tell their doctor that they are going out of the
country and would like to avoid "Traveler's Diarrhea.'" Be honest with your

What does Dr. Bones (Joseph Alton, M.D.), have to say about fish

Fish Antibiotics for Preppers
Are fish antibiotics right for the prepper? Stocking fish antibiotics for
survival is a personal decision. We hope you will consider the sage advice of
Patriot Nurse, and consult other prepping medical teams, such as Nurse
Amy and Dr. Bones.

In short, you may as well consult your doctor about FishMox, which is the
same amoxicillin prescribed for humans, to see if this option is right for you
and your family. This antibiotic intended for fish may be the only antibiotic
available in uncertain times when a doctor is not available. Telling your
doctor about your plans may spur him or her to write you a prescription for
your emergency preparedness needs.

Equivalent antibiotics available for fish and popular with preppers,
  1. Fish Flex (Cephalexin)*
  2. Fish Flox (Ciprofloxacin).*
  3. FishMox Fort (Amoxicillin)*
  4. Fish Pen (Penicillin)* Treatment for Syphilis.
  5. Fish Zole Metronidazole)*
  6. Fish Cin (clindamycin)*
  7. Fish Sulfe Forte (Sulfa)*

Did you know antibiotics have no effect on viruses?
As a reminder, antibiotics kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms. The
fish antibiotics on this page are for the control of common bacterial
infections in fish. They are directly lethal to bacteria, but have no effect on
viruses! Do not use them under ordinary conditions. Never self-treat.

Why should you NOT stock fish antibiotics for survival?
Fish antibiotics are for extreme catastrophic conditions in which
prescriptions are not available. Do not take any medication without the help
of a medical practitioner as extreme allergic reactions and misuse could
result in death!

In short you could kill somebody (or yourself) and possibly even breed a
resistant strain of bacteria. If you have fish antibiotics availbe during an
extreme emergency, and feel you should use them in order to save a life,
make sure that before you administer antibiotics, you check a references
first. The antibiotics pocketcard, left may help.

Also pictured right is a more lengthy reference, Antibiotics Simplified. This is
asuccinct guide designed to bridge knowledge gained in basic sciences
courses with clinical practice in infectious diseases. This practical text reviews
basic microbiology and how to approach the pharmacotherapy of a patient
with a presumed infection.

Happy endings...
There are rules and sometimes they're meant to be broken, but that
doesn't mean you should take fish antibiotics. You're not an expert in
dosage and you don't know how to match the antibiotic to the ailment.

The only happy ending is if you recover from your illness either with the help
of a medical professional or with natural antibiotics. Your body has amazing
self-healing properties and you can cultivate good health by eating foods to
improve your immune system. Even so, we know there are preppers out
there who want to stock fish antibiotics, "just in case." It's a personal
decision, but while you're at it, why don't you just get some fish?
