Fish Antibiotics for Human Use (no prescription required!)

Fish Antibiotics for Human Use (no prescription required!) | Knowledge Weighs Nothing: Believe it or not, many of the common antibiotics we are prescribed are also used to keep fish healthy in aquariums. Sceptical? I bet you are, but it is true! Most of the antibiotic medicines used to treat bacteria in aquariums contain just the one ingredient – the active antibiotic, and in many cases this is exactly the same antibiotic used for humans, nothing more, nothing less. The other strange thing is these aquarium antibiotics come in the same common dosages which are used on humans. To me that seems very strange. I have checked several sources, some of which were created by medical doctors and below is a list of aquarium branded medicines which contain commonly prescribed human antibiotics:

FISH-MOX which is Amoxicillin 250mg (http://www.drugs.com/amoxicillin.html)
FISH-MOX FORTE which is Amoxicillin 500mg (http://www.drugs.com/amoxicillin.html)
FISH-FLEX which is Keflex 250mg (http://www.drugs.com/keflex.html)
FISH-FLEX FORTE which is Keflex 500mg (http://www.drugs.com/keflex.html)
FISH-ZOLE which is Metronidazole 250mg (http://www.drugs.com/metronidazole.html)
FISH-PEN which is Penicillin 250mg (http://www.drugs.com/penicillin.html)
FISH-PEN FORTE which is Penicillin 500mg (http://www.drugs.com/penicillin.html)

  1. i've used fish antibiotics twice in the last 2 months for mild pneumonia. i have cipro, doxycycline, amoxicillin, and cephelexin. they are double bagged in mylar with with oxygen absorbers.

    for the first couse, i took out too few capsules as the amoxicillin was packed in bags of 20. this came out to a 7-ish day course of antibiotics, which by teh end i was feelign better. i got steadily sick again, over the next few weeks. then i took a 15 day course of doxycycline because i was just plain sick of being sick.

    my advice is to package the antibiotics in mylar like russian nesting dolls. that way you won't expose any more antibiotics to oxygen as is necessary. secondly, take an appropriate amount of medication and don't half-step it.

  2. it is extremely unwise for people to indiscriminately take antibiotics without a medical professional screening them, this will lead us even quicker to the MRSA type bugs we are now seeing that eat antibiotics for lunch. Efficacy of these drugs is on a serious decline from over prescription , and from pressure to prescribe them by people who don't know a virus from a fungus from a bacterial disease. You sir are irresponsible as hell and should be sanctioned for contributing to this idiotic notion that people should take antibiotics whenever they feel it's ok with no prescription. Oh yes , I am a scientist and am currently watching these bugs that eat keflex and cipro for lunch, when they proliferate , then your SHTF scenario will actually exist.
