After reading Seven Antibiotics to Stockpile and Why, readers have asked what dose of antibiotics to stockpile. As a general rule, I suggest that you not request multiple strengths of a single medicine, as few if any doctors would agree to this.
Here are my recommendations for the most appropriate doses of common antibiotics to stockpile and why.
1. Amoxicillin – Many pharmacies offer the 250 and 500 mg capsules at the same unit price. Amoxicillin tablets are also available, but may cost somewhat more than the capsules, depending on the pharmacy. Amoxicillin tablets may be split more easily (than the powder in the capsules can be divided) to provide a lower dose if needed for children or small adults. (Babies are usually administered a reconstituted powder, but few pediatricians would prescribe this for stockpiling.) The best single option is amoxicillin 500 mg tablets (or capsules).
