For your first aid kit try getting a used coffee bag or something you can heat seal with a foodsaver and drop your meds in them. Then get a small chunk of dry ice to drop in and allow it to melt...this will purge the bag of oxygen with CO. Then heat seal it to keep your meds out of the presence of oxygen for longer term storage.
I have vicodin and cipro (good broad spectrum antibiotic) from previous doctor visits which I consider a must for my first aid kit.

Don't use too much wax or the cotton will be totally in-cased, but it would be water-proof. You would just need a knife to cut some of the tender. Magnesium burns hot and while wet.
