Gear Review and Medicine Review

My best friend tonight on my
night shift...Ricola!
I've added some tabs at the top of my blog labeled Gear Review and My Medicine. The Gear Review tab will lead to a page which summarizes and gives quick links to products I have tried. I'll either recommend them or I won't depending on my experience with that particular product.

Gear Review:
  • Bug Out Bag Contents
  • Survival Gear
  • Cooking Gear
  • Home Preparedness Items
  • Food Preparedness Stuff
  • Medical Kit Items
  • Digital Library / Electronics / Videos
  • Guns / Weapons
  • Sanitation Supplies
The My Medicine tab will lead to a page where I list my trials and tribulations with different medicines. Over the years, I have found cures for most of what plagues me on a regular basis. Obviously, every cure doesn't work on every person and what works for me may not work for you. I am not a medical doctor and you should consult yours regarding what medicine is right for you. But by sharing what works for me, hopefully will spur some friendly talk about what works for other people and we can all learn from each other.

My Medicine:

  • Nasal decongestants
  • Headaches / migraines
  • Sore Throat
  • Sleep Aides
  • Energy / Appetite Suppressant
I'll add to both categories as opportunities arise. Feel free to comment and add your suggestions.

to those that may try to store the original Sudafed decongestants be careful.

In some states, it is now illegal to purchase across the state line and bring it over. I recently read a story where a woman was going to the pokey for running across the state line not realizing a new law had just went into affect.

Also be aware that you can only "legally" have up to a certain amount of the stuff in your possession. Too much and you'll be accuses of trying to cook up a batch.

Matt is 100% correct. You should always be aware of your local and national laws regarding medicine. I don't advocate breaking any laws.

I once asked an ER Physician what she did to give herself a boost on the night shift and she directed me to the little red Sudafed tablets. She takes three of them at once.

I went to the local pharmacy to purchase them and had to show my drivers license to buy them. When I inquired, I was told these pills were used to make meth. Hmmm, not sure I want them now.

But I got them anyway. I took them as suggested and I guess they did the job. I wasn't tired throughout my night shift but I certainly didn't feel a "jolt" like I would using ephedra or phentermine.

However, special tip to the Dads, these little red Sudafed pills cause a MAJOR turtle effect. Don't expect to have any fun for a good 24 hours after taking them.

I reported this back to my ER Physician friend and she just laughed at me. She didn't have to worry about that effect. :-(

I, on the other hand, haven't taken them since.
