Top off my head is pressure style bandages. There easy to make homemade with absorbing cloths and shoestring. Think of sprains so ace wraps. And if you are able learn how to set and splint fractures. Learn how to do a tourniquet. And get some simple fish antibiotics. Those are some things people not think off that in a bad situation may save a life. Also look into some of the homeopathic remedies such as honey that have multiple medical uses. I learned the foam that grows at the top of honey is actually hydrogen peroxide. Good Boots obviously being important and extra socks as preventing some common ailments is one of the best medical supplies you can have. Depending on your climate foot fungus may be an issue if it often wet. And an advanced first aid book. There is few supplies that you actually need on hand most of them can be found within an injury situation but not all. So being educated is great.

Multivitamin pills like this are not strictly medicine but are worth including in a medical kit just to make sure you're not missing out on some vital vitamin, popping just one a week should do the job.
(PS- these are too big to swallow easily unless broken in half, so next time I'm going to get a smaller brand)

- If you don't live near a water source. And your water supply is scarce, you may not be bathing as often as you should. In the Army, when I was in the field for weeks with no shower, well my feet would get a little nasty. Changing your socks and foot powder can only do so much.

Right now Wal-Mart has full size products of pain killer, alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, allergy medicine, cold medicine etc for .88$ each. We bought triple of everything along with non latex gloves, masks, bandages, a basic emt tool kit and placed them all in three 5 gallon buckets that can be grabbed with ease if needed in an emergency or bug our situation.

I just put this out on another thread but then I saw this one. But this lady has a lot of videos with a lot of information, she is called the patriot nurse and is well known in a lot of SHTF sites.
So on medical issues and supplies I would suggest you watch some of the Patriot Nurse's videos.
ThePatriotNurse's channel - YouTube
I agree, she has some great videos! This is one of my favorites:

I went with a Combat Medics' Bag - It's got everything that fedorthedog listed plus I added in vitamins, more pain killers (specifically 4 big bottles of excedrin migraine) and an extra field surgeons kit (it came with one but I bought a backup).

I attached it to the bottom of my ALICE pack, which is sitting in my bedroom closet. Since we don't have to bug out living in the country, I just wanted to be prepared.
