    My wife just got an additional 3 month refill and now has just over 100 days supply of her thyroid medication. That's the only thing we regulary take besides OTC stuff (well stocked).

    One would think that a 90 day supply would be more than enough to get through this "crisis". But that's just me.

    Shortage of drugs and ingredients from China. Depleted at the source.

    Most Americans have absolutely no idea what a high percentage of ALL drug ingredients (Prescription and over the counter as well) come from china and nowhere else anymore. Well, OK - some come from India.

    Greed did this. Corporate greed: Outsource everything, pay almost nothing for the ingredients and labor and make a fortune.

    You get it.

    The pinheaded Globalists did this and. The American public was distracted, didn’t care or thought it was a great idea.

    We get all our meds in 90 day prescriptions through Tri-Care Express mail shipping since there are no military pharmacies close by. We just got our 90 day supplies this past week, and we can order the next 90 supply at any time. But they won't process the order until the insurance will pay for it. I've gone ahead and ordered the next shipment in the hope it is first order in, first order out. If they are out of stock of any meds, then I'll just have to see if I can find them locally. This has happened on blood pressure meds once before even before this Chinese flu hit and China threatened to cut off supplies to the US.

    Remember that some of your prescriptions that have a "discard date" are still good after that date. There may be some degradation of full potency though.

    Some medications can be harmful if they have degraded too far so check that on line.

    Much depends on if prescriptions have been stored in a cool, dry, place and kept in the dark.

    Thanks For cleaning up whatever it was. Been too busy to spend a bunch of time on the forum so I missed it, good.

    We’re taking supplements to help stay well and working out in the house on the treadmill & rower.

    Was crazy, while filling my on-line basket at Vitacost with vitamin C and Colloidal Silver and other healthy stuff the C was sold out from under me!!! I found some more and placed the order as quick as possible, seems like many others are doing the same.

    Something I read about a long time ago was to use Grapefruit Seed Extract as a virus killer. We both have added that and D3 to the list, our pharmacist was very helpful too. She told CWO for us to take the Colloidal Silver since it was for the lungs. We do know about it turning folks skin literally blue so will follow the directions lol. (Smurfs)



    Doing good, eating good 👍🏻 😃
