DOC K'S MEDICINE LIST

<< < (26/26)

One thing to add on the dental side to the list:

Instead of the temporary OTC filling kits, on advice of my Dentist I bought some glass ionomer filling material for semi-perm SHTF tooth repairs.

Good track record in Africa in daily use, and it was <$100 on Amazon

Combined with some dental tools, it's a good expedient repair method.

Background info is here:

This set is also relatively cheap for temporary crowns. Good to have on hand in case you run across a dentist:

Caution: I am not a dentist and I don't play one on TV

Man Doc, this list is awesome.  I know it's old, but THANK YOU for taking the time to put it together.
