Lifesaving Meds

for Common Medical Conditions

Survivor Doc logo

Instructions for use customized

to your medical history.

Before modern medicine, many common illnesses could quickly become very serious or even deadly. When traveling-domestic or abroad or in any scenario when you need medication- you now have the opportunity to be prepared before you get sick. 

Survivor Doc's telemedicine service allows you to carry your own personal medications with you- prior to illness. Regardless of where you are.  You will have instructions- in writing on how to use these medications, just for you. As per the Survivor Doc's orders.

Every day, medical clinics administer common medications to prevent:


  • Colds and the Flu from becoming life-threatening pneumonia

  • UTI’s from leading to kidney infection

  • Skin infections from spreading and worsening



Survivor Doc is for anytime you may not have easy access to medical care.


Thank you for letting me provide you and your family with personal lifesaving medications- before you get sick.


Stay Strong, Healthy and Prepared,


Thomas O’Connor, MD  The Survivor Doc

Thomas O'Connor, MD is board certified in Internal Medicine and is a Clinical Instructor of Medicine at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. Click here to learn more about Survivor Doc and his team.


I am an expert Internal Medicine physician and would like to provide you with your own personal medical prescriptions.​

In Case Of:

  • Traveling domestically or abroad: have a Rx for common medical situations- cold, flu, sinus and lung infections, allergies, skin infections, UTI, diarrhea and poison ivy. 

  • Camping/hunting/fishing: have a Rx for common medical situations- cold, flu, sinus and lung infections, allergies, skin infections, UTI, diarrhea and poison ivy.

  • Natural disasters and you’re stuck in your home for days: hurricane, blizzard, flood, tornado, extreme heat/cold 

  • In a foreign country with poor quality medical care you do not trust: Stay out of the hospital by having basic lifesaving medications accessible to treat early medical conditions before they worsen!

I’m an avid hunter and will spend up to week straight in remote wilderness. On many occasions, I would get a cold that would turn into a nasty bronchial infection and without antibiotics, I would have been at high risk for pneumonia. In addition, I am highly susceptible to poison ivy and I need to carry an appropriate dose of prednisone with me at all times in the wilderness. I’ve used these medications on several occasions, and without the Survivor Doc’s personal medications and instructions, I would have had to end my trip early, or potentially be evacuated! Thank you Survivor Doc for keeping me going strong!

Top 7 Medicines for WTSHTF

Let’s get right down to business. WTSHTF there will be no time to plan things out. There are no apps to give you notice for this event, so those who are prepared will be ready. Can TSHTF?  And when will this happen? Obviously, no one knows and for God’s sake, we all hope that this day never comes. This is not fear-mongering; rather, a calculated risk that even the most conservative consider possible and someday inevitable. This thought was enough to motivate an old-school Primary Care Doc like me to do something! I created the Survivor Doc division of my medical practice.
