  1. I`ve been an insomnia patient for more than a decade. Nonetheless by the help of this sleep plan “Fαnvοkα Fawam” (Google it), I was able to gain a great sleep every night. I can right now sleep for Eight hours. The health of my sleeping pattern has urged me to stop making use of the plan. My sleeping disorder has finally vanished because of this program.. .

  2. I could not stop looking over this great survival guideline “suvo amazing guide” (Google it) once I started it. At the start of each chapter, there were real-life situations which were also used as basis for the ideas that followed. It really gives you a feeling of actually surviving in an disaster ridden reality. I would recommend this to anyone who really wants to be ready for an upcoming disaster.

  3. I didn't know benadryl had a place in prepping. Interesting. I'll look more into it. My experience with it is from the late 80s when I used diphenhydramine to help me sleep. It worked to some extent but never eradicated my sleep issues or fully provided what I needed from sleep. And with the advent of melatonin it became a thing of the past for me. Would've never even crossed my mind to store that for prepping :-) But if it is as helpful as you say I'll look into it.

  4. Always enjoy your videos, and this was an item that I have not stocked, but will be. Doc?? I read some of the previous comments, and can't believe some people!! I have always enjoyed your videos and reviews, and please keep them coming!! This SC State Constable, will always have your back!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. once again excellent advice! I recall cases back in Michigan where some people on camping trips having allergic reactions to bee stings and either had antihistamines OR were damned fortunate enough to make it to a small town ER! Keep up the good work Doc glad to see you are still on youtube.

  6. MDPrepper, Good topic and nice discussion. I'm going to disagree with you on this one. I am a pediatric pulmonologist and deal with a lot of allergies. The 2nd-generation antihistamines, such as Zyrtec (cetirizine), are more effective then Benadryl (diphenhydramine). A single dose can last up to 24 hours whereas Benadryl needs to be repeated three or four times each day. This means the same number of tablets is going to last much longer. That could be important in a situation where resupply is limited. Also, cetirizine won't make you sleepy, like diphenhydramine. Sleepiness could be a real problem in an emergency situation.

    Neither of these medications are effective as primary treatment for severe allergic reactions or abaphylaxis which require injectible epinephrine. However, both can be used as adjuncts in the treatment of severe allergic reactions. Again, cetirizine is superior because of faster onset and longer duration of action.

    I generally agree with your comments that in a prepping situation tablets are preferred over liquids for ease of storage and transport. The quicker onset of action for liquids can be somewhat mitigated when usibg tablets by crushing the tablet before swallowing.
