I am trying to create a new list of medications to keep aboard. I'll post it here so that you can comment on it; may be we can come up with a pretty standard list...
I put some questions and remarks in there too. Check out Albendazole incl. it's use around the world; English
Wikipedia has some good info on it.
Ciprofloxacin - broad spectrum anti-biotic (better for gram negative)
Augmentin - broad spectrum anti-biotic (better for gram positive)
Benzodiazepine (Valium) - stress control (in event of injury)
Vicodin - pain killer
Paracetamol (Tylenol) - pain killer
Ibuprofen - pain killer / anti-inflammatory / muscle relaxant
Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) - muscle relaxant
Loperamide - diarrhea control
Cetirizine (Zyrtec) - antihistamine, allergic reaction control
Prednisone - allergic reaction control
EpiPen - anaphylaxic shock
Albendazole - parasites, Giardia control
Terbinafine cream (Lamisil) - antifungal
(we have Nystatin cream (Fungicidin)… would Terbinafine replace this?)
Topical lidocaine spray - local anesthetic
Anti-bacterial First Aid spray (Lanacane) - cuts, scrapes, burns
Sea-sickness medication -> which ones? Cinnarizine, Stugeron, dimenhydrinate, scopolamine, promethazine+ephedrine. I carry Gravol which is Dramamine but never used it.
Aspirin - for heart problems?
other, still working on this:
zinc oxide tape - taping sprains etc.
Body wipes (Fresh Bath) - Hygiene, cleaning
Hot Coldrex / CitroSan / Panadol - common cold treatment drinks
Dermabond (super glue) - wound closure
hydrocortisone hemorrhoid cream
vaselin - lubricant
deet insect repellent
