Don't forget the Walking Dead! I'm so excited, it's a great show. Daryl is my favorite character, and as someone else mentioned, I'd definitely want him on my side! I'm worried though, he was doing just fine for himself before he started caring so much about the rest of the group! Once he started contributing to the group, that's when he started getting himself in trouble!

Also, on a semi-related side note, remember the episode where somebody needed antibiotics, and Daryl pulled out a Ziplock bag full of them (apparently for his mia brother's variety of STDs)? There is a website selling a first aid kit with antibiotics included. I wonder if it's entirely legal and safe? Thoughts?

I'm not an attorney, and nothing I say should be construed as legal advice. With that said, there are at least two other companies selling kits with prescription drugs in them. In this case as in the others I'm aware of, a doctor holds a telephone consultation with the customer and prescribes medications based on their history and needs. This, as far as I can tell, fulfills all legal requirements.

I'm not a doctor, and nothing I say should be construed as medical advice. Nothing is entirely safe. If you follow directions it's probably safer to use antibiotics in a wilderness medical emergency than not to. Obviously, if you have access to definitive treatment or even a consultation with a doctor you should take advantage of it.

Some years ago I had need of some high power prescription drugs - I was the most proficient first aider on a group planning a month long caving expedition to China. I talked to my primary care physician and walked out with appropriate meds, mostly broad spectrum antibiotics and pain killers. Remember all those items have expiration dates, so refills are the real issue. You can't just buy the kit and forget about it.

That reminds me. In college some of my friends who went to study abroad in China were regularly prescribed a course of Cipro. I'm not sure whether any of them actually had to take the meds, and I don't know whether things have changed since (please don't ask me how long ago).

Interesting....The antibiotic I was given was cipro, along with plenty of "pluggo" meds. We figured, that at some point, we would all get "Mao's revenge." Never happened. We were in some fairly remote villages, and our cuisine was strictly local. None of us had any bowel disturbances at all. We did not take cipro prophylactically, and we never needed it.

This thread is for discussing the show. Foolproof strategy to avoid spoilers for a television show is not to open up threads on the television show.


For anyone on the east coast who is interested, discussion of tonight's episode is ongoing at this link below:
