Many GDPs are confused about which emergency drugs they should stock. There is a lack of uniform advice on this topic. Most recommended lists of emergency drugs contain superfluous medications which GDPs would never be expected to use. This paper rationalises the content of the emergency drugs box and provides clear, standardised guidance. A list of ten essential emergency drugs is presented, all of which can be administered by simple routes. Every GDP should be trained and competent to use these essential emergency drugs.
