I have done some more research
. A lot of generic medications and even antibiotics can be supplied by your local GP once you explain why you need them and what you are doing. From discussions, they would only concent to named people on board as each person would be asked a series of questions to rule
out adverse reactions. These would be issued to the captain
of the vesel or to another nominated person who has some medical
commonsense. A written prescripti OK n would be supplied with what you needed. This will help with customs
. Wasnt really that hard, even for trips to isolated areas that are not that far from land or your home. Any expired medications would be returned and a new script issued. These are on the grounds of how long it would take to get help if you were stuck somewhere for a while. Be ho est and also have a list of worst case scinarios. All the doc needs is a valid reason. For morphine etc, training is required. This can be done informally and again, you just have to prove to the doc you know what you are doing. Strong oral medication is easier to get than injectables without formal training. Its worth having and not needed than needed and not having. Mine are locked in a steel hull
fram mounted box.
