MEDICAL SUPPLIES/DRUGS/ETC. FROM WHERE?

With a pretty good background in the medical field but no real contacts, does anyone know what would constitute a good surgical field kit to take aboard on extended cruises? How does a person explain to the authorities that the small bottle of Morphine is for medical use only? Also, would a person need to be close with their local doctor to outfit such a kit? I suppose it wouldn''t hurt, at least you''d have someone to call from jail! I see lots on the boards about food, water, drinks, etc. but not much on putting together a pretty complete med pack. thanks

the best kit i have ever seen ( which i have)is from seaside pharmacy in either california or wash state.They have been making kits for commercial ships for over 80 years
if you are a captain of a documented vessel they will provide all medications without scripts except schedule 2 drugs.(morphine, oxycontin,percodan) etc.
these you have to get from you own doctor wit a 3 part script.

thank you so much for the link. they are an awesome supplier. I was able to custom design a kit based on what i already have and saved a bunch of money by just ordering what i really needed. I would recommend them as well, if not only based on their web site and phone personalities! but their selection of necessary items.
Any other links anyone has would be greatly appreciated as well, although i can''t imagine any supplier better equipted.
thanks again

Well, the first leg of our planned round the world trip is probably down the Mexico coastline to Panama and then up to the carribean, from there across to the Azzores, through the med. and down to the Indian Ocean, stopping around the India coast and then on to New Zealand, up to Japan, and then across to the Alaskan inland passage back into the States, total time, about 2-3 years.
now what?

I''m putting together a med kit as well and would like a source for things beyond what''s in the local Walgreens.

However, I don''t seem to be able to find any links to a ''Seaside Pharmacy''.

I''d appreciate a actual web address/link if you would be so kind. Thanks!

Just did a search for Seaside Pharmacy and came up with http://www.seasidemarineintldrug.com/. This is something we''re interested in also. Also looking for a good wilderness medicine type course.

Thanks

Bruce

Thanks very much for the link. I tried searching but never found it. Not sure why my search engines (google/MSN, etc.) couldn''t locate it.
