I've been doing some research on fish and bird antibiotics and whether these antibiotics are the same as what humans are prescribed.  I came across this on some prepper site that was advertised on FB.  

If you weren't aware you can purchase antibiotics for your fish and birds without a prescription from the vet and no need to see a doctor, I actually ordered Doxycycline and Ciprofloxacin (for my pet fish and bird Wink

This is what I ordered, the Doxycycline was in a powder form so there is no way to know for sure if this is safe for human use or even Doxycycline.  The reason it was in powder, according to the site, is due to the cost of doxy going up.  There were options for this antibiotic in pill form.  However, the Ciprofloxacin came in pill form, yeah its for fish....the instructions say to dissolve one tablet in water then put into fish tank.  Hmmmm, now why wouldn't they make that in powder form too?  By the way, the pill is stamped with a "P" on one side and "500" on the other.  I did a little research and this cipro pill is one of many forms from different pill manufacturers.

Both containers clearly have warnings about "not for human use."  But here is why I believe it is all just a scare tactic and these antibiotics are the same as what is prescribed for humans.  
1. Are there really separate manufacturing plants for fish/bird antibiotics? There is that much of a demand that a whole separate facility can be justified?  If they are made in the same facilities as the human version wouldn't they have to shut down the line and completely clean and disinfect before manufacturing the fish/bird versions?

2. Wouldn't it be just as easy and more profitable to use the same antibiotic but just put a warning label against human use?  Think about it, isn't that how capitalist America has always been run...faster, cheaper, easier, more profit.
3.  Why would an antibiotic made for fish/birds be in a pill form then the instructions say dissolve in water?   Wanker

4.  When researching the biggest concern from people and professionals was whether the fillers were safe for humans the actual medicine is the same.  The way I see it is if a small tiny fish can be exposed to and survive these fillers how in the hell could they harm me?  

5. I've read comments from people on prepper forums who have taken these fish/bird antibiotics and were perfectly fine.  They all say the same, the antibiotics are the same as what are given to humans and work the same.


I've actually been prescribed doxy and cipro in the past and know what MGs and dosage I should take so I've decided to take my health matters into my own hands and be prepared for times when I may not be able to get to a Dr.  

Now for my disclaimer, I am not a doctor nor any kind of medical professional.  I haven't stayed in a holiday inn express recently either.  But as far as I am concerned these fish/bird antibiotics are the same as human versions just put in different bottles, packaging, different labels and the all important warning labels so the sheep won't figure out they can bypass the AMA and big pharma.  It is important to note that antibiotics shouldn't be abused and if you choose to go this route you better be sure you know what you are doing.

I've had to be treated in the past for a certain condition that keeps reappearing, most times it goes away on its own but when the symptoms get to be too unbearable I've always went to the Dr and hoped they would prescribe cipro (it seems to do the trick) so I figure why bother going through the hassle to see a doctor when I can just do this on my own.  And I would like to have some antibiotics on hand just in case SHTF really does happen.

Exactly!!

Seems like a good product to have on hand just in case!
I have used them for toothaches. They are exactly the same as the ones for humans. I get mine here.

I purchased the Clindamycin. It was exactly the same dosage and capsules my dentist had once prescribed and it worked. I just didn't see the need to pay a dentist a few hundred dollars to prescribe them when I could do it myself for the cost of the pills.
