Where to get doxycycline or ciprogreenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread
First, spoke with another chemist buddy...he said that doxycycline is derived from oxytetracycline and has different properties so it is not one and the same and does not prevent anthrax. Plain tetracycline will not prevent anthrax. Don't forget, we are talking about treatment VS prevention..it causes some confusion. Inhalation anthrax is the really fatal bugger. Tetracycline in large IV doses can cure anthrax, but oral doses of the same drug cannot be given in sufficient quantities to prevent the disease. For you lucky people who live within driving distance of Mexico, you can zip on down there and get all you want of either Cipro or Doxycycline. If anybody is going there, perhaps we could form a forum co-op and buy bulk..you just gotta trust folks sometimes! Here are two internet sites I have used in the past to obtain medications at a better cost than in the USA. http://www.zldamen.com/pharmacy.html
ALSO, when I was zipping around these two sites looking at prices of doxycycline, I came across a generic offering called "Bronmycin" which is only $30 US dollars for 120 capsules and is doxycycline hycate instead of doxycycline hydrochloride. Intrigued, I did a medical search on doxycycline hycate and saw that it was listed as one of the drugs effective against anthrax. Tomorrow, I will call my local pharmacy person and ask if that is the generic they use here for doxycycline. If it is, then we all can get a bunch of it online at a wonderful price!!!!!! Once again, will let you know as soon as I know. God bless.

Ok, there is more info regarding antibiotics to prevent airborne anthrax: Research studies have shown that Cipro prevents ALL strains of anthrax...doxycycline prevents MOST strains of anthrax. Cipro does have a generic, but it is still very pricy IMHO to purchase for a bunch of folks. On 1drugstore.com, the price is listed as $40 USA dollars for 30 pills.That would mean $80 dollars per adult for a month which is what you would need to prevent the disease. After talking it over with my husband and checking our wallets, we will order the doxycycline and trust in the Lord for the best, because we have 10 folks to obtain meds for, and $150 for doxycycline generic is all we can afford...1drugstore-online.com is where I will be ordering. I have used them in the past to order antihistamines because it is much less expensive than in the USA...also ordered some erythromycin a few times and had zero problems. There is a disclaimer on their site that "due to the war, express delivery will be delayed 3-6 weeks", so I have no idea how long it will take to actually get the medication. When I have used them before, I did not pay for express delivery and received the meds in 10 working days. God bless.
