Why you might need it
In a Doomsday end of the world survival scenario, preppers may not have access to doctors and medicines.
Having the most important medicines and medications on hand could mean the difference between life and death in a survival situation when there is no long term access to doctors and modern medicine other than what supplies you have on hand.
Below is a list prescription and non-prescription medicine and medications that would be important to have in a long term survival situation whether you Bug-In or Bug-Out.
If you are a prepper looking to find the most important medicines and medications to stockpile, look over the list below to see if you might be missing any that you may want to have on hand.
The list of survival medicines and medications was created in collaboration with Dr. Ryan Chamblin, trauma surgeon and author of the medical survival books that I highly recommend called Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse: First Aid Kit Building and Mini Med School for Preppers and The Prepper Pages.
Note that the items below come in different quantities and sizes and from different suppliers. This list should assist preppers in determining some items that they currently may not have but desire to stockpile. The medications below are what I have and/or would purchase for myself.

Infection Survival Medicine & Medications
Bacitracin Zinc Ointment 1 Oz / 28 G (Pack of 4) (Single antibiotic containing Bacitracin Zinc. Better value than Polysporin and Neosporin, and also does not contain the active ingredient in Neosporin which some people are allergic to. Many dermatologists will just recommend Bacitracin (with Zinc) since Bacitracin is least likely to cause any allergic reactions as compared to Polysporin and Neosporin.
Polysporin First Aid Antibiotic Ointment 1-Ounce (Double antibiotic containing Bacitracin Zinc and Polymyxin B Sulfate. Does not contain Neomycin which is included in Neosporin ointment. Because Neomycin can cause allergic reactions in some individuals, dermatologists and many plastic surgeons do not want their patients using Neosporin, and instead recommend Polysporin to heal cuts and scars.)
Neosporin First Aid Antibiotic Ointment Maximum Strength Pain Relief, 1-Ounce (Triple antibiotic containing Bacitracin Zinc, Polymyxin B Sulfate, and Neomycin). You can treat or prevent a wider range of bacterial infections by using Neosporin. However, if you are allergic to Neomycin, your wounds will not heal, the area will turn red likely over a period of days, and you may mistakenly think you need to use more Neosporin, when Polysporin or Bacitracin Zinc would work to heal the wound).
