Re: Prescription medicines for first aid kit

Buy a good medical kit, it will have most of what you need. mine has syringes and suture, Plus syringes are good for Irrigation and flushing a wound.kits, I would see if you can get something for local anesthesia in case you have to give yourself sutures.

I have had to pull a tooth and give myself sutures without any local anesthesia, trust me I wish I had something. When your on your own and a long way from help a medical kit is priceless. coconut water has been used as an intravenous hydration fluid when nothing else was available.

this is the kit i have and i have purchased extras.. STOMP Portable Hospital Coyote Tan Backpack Military Medical Kit Extensive and Intensive Medic Care
