[Being a self-reliance type myself, I read around the net to try to learn more pretty much non-stop. While I'm not sure about specific Rx drugs,
I found this site www.equipped.org...
which has suggestions and links to doctor's groups who help survival minded people build a stock of basic first aid meds. I haven't used these services yet so I can't vouch for anything, but I thought I'd put the info out there. Also, I know people who buy meds in three month supplies across the border (Mexico and Canada) to stock their shelves with in case SHTF.
hope this helps,
Thanks alot... Good help for all of us, as we're in the same basic boat.
Thought it was quite interesting that one of us stated that there were no more asylums- just therapists offices. BE AWARE! You are marked! You will be incarcerated, not in in cushy therapist office if the SHTF. Know how to disappear!
Just watching out for my fellow "crazy" folk...

Medications to schizo, bi polar people are as vital as food. Where would we go, or how would one prepare a stockpile? You can't stock any needed meds because the only way you can get it is over the counter through a doctors prescription. 1 month supply maximum, usually. Is there any way I could stockpile 1 year supply of lithium carbonate or anti-psyhotic? Depending how long the disaster endures, after 3-4 days no medication a mentally ill person starts receiving delusions, hallucinations, and psychotic episodes. There's no telling what he or she will end up doing, it is very possible for them to end up doing something life threatening. I don't think a mentally ill person would survive long.

Speaking as someone who deals with schizoaffective disorder (a mild version of schizophrenia) and bipolar - I'd have to say that depending on the survival situation at hand I might actually do alright.
As far as medications, I find that if I am far from the general populace and surrounded by nature almost constantly, my episodic breaks and depression/mania almost cease to be a factor entirely.
