first aid / traveling kit

I work in Nigeria on rotations. Half time on shore half time offshore. Theres a private hospital 5 mins away from where I work onshore but the other day I need a plaster... not really hospital worthy. So I opened the first aid kit and it was empty. So I told HR next day it was refilled not an issue... So today I noticed it was empty again... Cant really complain at the locals if my family need something like that id take it...
However I decided it might be in my interest to throw a first aid kit in my bag of the basics. plasters, bandages, head ache tablets scissors etc. I was looking online and I decided that the ones bout where ok but I already carry a bag with a sewing kit and some other bits in so I was just going to grab the basics and add it to that. Then a friend said that's ok but you will never have what you need... which made me think would else should I add. Now I know the hospital is there and its clean and fully stocked so I don't need any major equipment. So any ideas what you would throw in?

    Butterfly stitches, 
    Assorted Plasters
    Burn creams
    Anti Histamines
    Anti inflammatories
    Paracetomol /Codine etc 
    Viagra handy for number of reasons. 
    Superglue for cuts etc 
    Sling and bandages
    Assorted syringes and needles. from Slin up to greens again needles are super useful. 
    Iodine or equivalent
    Tramadol or equivalent if you can get it. As its Nigeria sure you could. 
    Dioralyte or equivalent
    Ex Lax or equivalent
    Razer blades the old fashioned ones though. 
     
    Would be a good start I reckon and cover most minor aliments, anything not covered there i think you will end up in hospital. If possible get a box to put them in that you can lock.

    Banging birds, heart issues and altitude sickness basically anything that needs you to get blood vessels open. I have it for the mountains. Never had to pop one though but I have been with people who have.
     
    Its also good for spiking your mates drink when he has an important meeting to attend.
