Should I really have a 30 day supply of medication?

Pharmacies may not be able to receive shipments or restock during an emergency, so having a 30-day supply is a great idea. However, the type of medication and your insurance may make having a 30-day supply difficult. There are still many things you can do to become more prepared; a few examples  include getting in the habit of renewing your prescriptions on the first day you are eligible and keeping a current list of all your prescriptions in your emergency kit.
