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, include:
  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.

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

Happy endings...
Fish antibiotics for humans? 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?

The video from Patriot Nurse above works but looks as though it doesn't.

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

* 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 physician.

How to Get Antibiotics for Prepping

include Fish Flex (Cephalexin), FishMox Fort (Amoxicillin), and Fish
Pen (Penicillin), but are fish antibiotics safe? We agree with the
Smithsonian that misuse aquatic antibiotics is a dangerous game.
During a long-term crisis, however, fish antibiotics could save
your life.

The decision regarding antibiotics 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
