Prescription medicines for first aid kit

I'm off to see an amenable doctor later this week and will discuss what medicines above and beyond the contents of a prepackaged offshore first-aid kit I should bring. This will be for myself on transoceanic passages (I have no known allergies) and have only come up with:

Cipro(flaxin) - in case of severe infection
Antihistamine - in case of allergic reaction
Penicillin - general emergency antibiotic
Scopolamine patch - Seasickness, I hate suppositories, and normal medicine taken orally won't work after symptoms have started.

Does anyone have other recommendations for contents that might (or do) require a prescription?
