Health, Illness, Pharmaceuticals and Peak Oil

I've seen Peak Oil videos that state that modern medications are made with petrochemicals.

The implication seems to be that once the SHTF there will be no more medications - except maybe for what you grow yourself.

That didn't bother me until the last few days when I learned that I'll be taking one medication on a long-term basis. The alternative is horrible pain at the very least.

I'm going to stock up with about 6 months worth of my medication. I may try to use some herbal alternatives too. But this is a topic that others must be dealing with. Others must have done some research on what is likely to happen to the pharmaceutical industry as things go downhill. Or at least you may have thought about how you'll handle it when it comes.
