In brief: Depends
See http://wwwnc.
Cdc.Gov/travel/destinations/list.Htm, for recommendations on drugs and immunizations for each of the countries you plan to visit. For a general first-aid kit, i recommend pepto bismol, (bismuth subsalicylate) ibuprofen, an antihistamine, antibiotic ointment, antiseptic wipes, and a miscellaneous assortment of bandaids and sterile dressings.

My personal preference, in addition to Dr. Eastern's excellent recommendations, is to bring Cipro for traveler's diarrhea and Ambien (to sleep) for jet lag. Nuvigil (to stay awake) is also good for jet lag but very expensive. All of these drugs require a prescription so you'll have to see your doctor or a travel expert as suggested.
